    Black And White Photos Post 'Em

    Thought I might start a thread dedicated to black and white images and/or toned images. My preference is generally towards making b&w or toned images (shooting digital & converting). If you like post up your black and whites!

    I shot this image over the weekend. while shooting something else I saw my friend there and screamed to him, don't move! took the shot and worked it up that night.

    FYI shot w/ my trusty s90 worked up in LR 3 and finished in CS5. I just started using LR and CS5 last fall. Prior to that I was using CS2 and using channel mixer to convert to black and white.

    Looking forward to seeing some of your pics!

    Great pic! Excellent to see a B&W that isnt digital (not saying the others are, this photographer just happened to post the type of film they used).

    This wasn't bike related, but it's always been one of my favorites.
    I took this during a pow wow at the Grand canyon.

    Not exactly a trail picture but here is a sprocket with some chain. I have a few hiking B&W pictures but I tend not to risk my manual cameras in a bike crash; and some of them are too heavy for trail use anyway (8x10 etc) .

    fricking awesome! great grain... most B/W just look like a color pic converted. this looks like a true BW.

    what lense and camera?

    Thank you for your kind words Broomhandle. Camera: Exakta RTL 1000, lens: Carl Zeiss Jena Flektogon 4/20. Both are marvels of East German engineering from 1970s but I took the picture only a couple years ago.

    I cant remember, but probably.

    I'll use the flash on point-n-shoot for fill.


    I don't do B&W very often, usually I am snapping blazing color pix of sunsets from the Foothills trails above ABQ.

    Self portrait using a rock as a tripod and holding the track stand waiting for the 20 second timer release. It was fun and allowed me to rest for a technical section I am usually to gassed to get through clean but styled it today.

    Nice job man. On the set up, the execution and the result!!

    I am a sucker for individual trees. To do a self portrait on your bike is even cooler.

    I am happy with the way it turned out. I am stoked a print is on order. Thanks guys for the positive feedback in the self port shot. I need to get a small tripod to rise with.

    Thanks, StiHacka! Just a plain vanilla digital image. Shot in color and coverted to B&W.

    brycej, no HDR. I believe I shot in automatic mode and used the flash to pick up the detail inside. It completely blew out the outside, but I was able to somewhat control that through PS.

    zona98 that is crazy how well you pulled back the highlights if they were blown out. The flash is driving me crazy on this one I can't see shadows that let me know where the flash was set. I also don't see any fall off with the flash. Everything is illuminated evenly... and the out side bright light is not blown out either. This is why I thought HDR

    brycej - I revisited the image, and I was mistaken about using the flash. I used the flash on another, similar shot, but not this one. This was, however, taken in auto mode. The image may be more a testament of my PS skills than my photography skills. I learned a thing or two during 6-7 months of fighting overexposure problems with a new lens (an L for that matter, which was later declared faulty by Canon). Here's the original RAW image converted with no adjustments:

    Ahhh, lovely! Let me guess. A Linhof Technika IV, 150/5.6 Symmar, Ilford Delta 100 souped in HC 110.

    Ok I know I am most likely completely wrong but it was a fun game to play. Love it. What scanner?

    EDit: I noticed the "few years ago" part too late.

    Well close. Toyo 45A / Rodenstock 150mm / T-Max 100 @ 80 ISO / HC110

    Not my scanner, but current Epson flatbread, scanned to 150mb file. I have it printed to 20x24.

    I think (w/o) pulling the neg, shot 1989?

    Snow blowing across the road on my way into work back in December.. it's B&W version of this iPhone pic. I really dig the bleak starkness of the winter image.

    Lately I've been taking some iPhone pix from moving vehicles, that have an abstractness about them. Here's an example:

    I've got a number of biking-related B&W shots posted to Flickr and am slowly trying to build my photography skills. Here are a few I especially like (click each photo to go to a larger image):

    Here is my version of the Zabriskie point taken with a 4x5 field view camera and a 135mm Symmar-S, taken during unusual summer storms.


    It most likely deserves a better crop.

    Ahhh, great clouds! I get out to DV once or twice a year. Haven't shot my Toyo 45A in quite a while now. I like the crop. Like the foreground (dark to light / left to right).

    Two from an off-the-beaten-path route near Moab.




    Taken last November when the light was low and creamy all day long, and we had the place to ourselves.

    I set it on time lapse mode, so it was shooting stills at a set interval. I'd used .5, 1, and 2 second settings on this day, I don't remember exactly which interval I had selected for this shot.
