Morning sunlight blasts up Christmas Steps, an ancient thoroughfare in the city centre; 16 Sept 2016.

Close-in with a wide angle lens, low angle sunlight, and textures all around.  This was never going to be a colour image but, as always, I like to capture images in colour, and then convert them to mono post-capture with Silver Efex Pro 2.  This method does, I think, provide far more options and potential for the final image(or images) than having the camera itself shoot mono images.

X-T1 with 10-24 Fujinon lens at 24mm (equiv); 1600 ISO; Silver Efex Pro 2, starting at the Film Noir 1 preset.


    • Well I’m not 100% sure – maybe others will know – but I think that if the camera is set to take only black and white, that’s all that’s captured >>> tho with some cameras its possible to capture a full colour Raw file as well as a mono jpeg. Thanks for your good words! ATP xxx


This blog has two pleasures for me - creating the images and hearing from you - so get your thoughts out to the world!
