I need a distraction from all the pain that I am in. Since no amount of medications are helping, the doctors have recommended that I continue to keep blogging and doing art therapy with my photography. So today is an Ansel Adams inspired day.
Black and white photography has been a long time favorite tool of my own and many photographers to help viewers drive into the details of a dramatic photo.
I was so honored that this herd of elk decided to come say “hello” while I was shooting a nearby landscape in Yellowstone National Park.
As much as I love the golden sun shining down on us, I love the softness and the mood of this photo when I developed it as a black & white.
In celebration of Ansel Adams and his impact upon B&W photography, I am going to share a side by side showing the transformative power of B&W. This photo was shot using a DSLR, (Adobe Camera) Raw format, and developed as black and white image using Adobe Lightroom Classic or Lightroom for Mobile.
Feel free to let me know if you’d like any tips on how to take your day time shots to a dramatic, new level.
