BRISTOL 105 – CHRISTMAS STEPS (MONO)

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.

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.

  6. I agree. Plus you can’t go black and white to color – can you?!?!? You’re so smart. ❤️ Interesting angle. I like it. 👍🏼 XXX ATP XXX

      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
