Black and White from the Past

For most of the pandemic I have been taking courses at F64 Elite by Blake Rudis. April’s challenge is to submit 2 dramatic black and white images for a possible critique. I converted four in my archives, being sure to have some absolute black and white in each, and sent in the first two below. Blake also posts many free tutorials on YouTube. I am also enjoying PixImperfect tutorials by Unmesh Dinda on the YouTube.

      Your welcome. I find Blake to be more organized, thorough, and a better teacher. He has excellent foundation courses. Both are excellent.

    Greenwood Cemetery and Court Chairs in the Mist are loaded with atmosphere, Sherry

      Thanks Sue. I didn’t think the Court Charis had enough dynamic range for the assignment. It has always been one of my favorite pictures. I needed to have images with very strong blacks and white though it does have atmosphere πŸ™‚
