Once again I have participated in Leanne Cole’s Monochrome Madness. The talent of photographers around the world is just amazing and you can see them on her blog in the link above.
This week, I shared a photo that I had taken on one of our road trips back in 2009 along the Great Ocean Road. Some of you may have seen this image before but I will post it again for those who haven’t.
As you can see, the photograph above is not monochrome. This meant that I needed to convert it.
I convert all of my images to B&W using a process in Photoshop (very early version) that I learned a long time ago using lab colour, grayscale and layers and blending modes. Only this time, I added an extra layer and a different blending mode. A little dodging and burning and I was very happy with my result.
I spent a lovely afternoon ‘playing’ in photoshop and I now have quite a number of monochrome images just waiting to be sent to Leanne each week for her challenge. 🙂
If you’ve never looked at the photography of Leanne (and Laura Macky who helps Leanne in running this) then please jump over and do so. And whilst you are there, don’t forget to check out the awesome photos from everyone else. And if you would like to enter a photo, then the instructions are in Leanne’s blog post.
Have a beautiful day everyone.
