ARCHIVE 61 – ALONG GODNEY DROVE (MONO)

Sheep, backlit amongst marsh grasses, along Godney Drove, near Upper Godney, on the Somerset Levels;  29 Aug 2009.

Some years back, just about as I was moving from film to digital, I went through a phase of using push processed black and white film, which I then had commercially scanned.  I loved the results – but the ironic thing is that far more can be made of a photo black and whitewise, by capturing it as a full colour RAW file, and then converting it to mono and further assaulting it with something like Nik Software’s Silver Efex Pro 2.  Using SEP2 on these scanned mono films offers far more limited possibilities, because the original colours of the images are not present.

F6 with 70-300 Nikkor at 300mm; Fuji Neopan 1600 monochrome film rated at 6400 ISO; commercially scanned.

About Adrian Lewis
Photographer working in monochrome, colour and combinations of the two - with a great liking for all sorts of images, including Minimalism, landscapes, abstracts, soft colour, people, movement, nature - I like to be adventurous in my photography, trying new ideas and working in many genres. And I'm fond of Full English Breakfasts and Duvel golden ale, though not necessarily together.
