Sometimes when I learn a new post-processing technique I like to go back to previous works and redo them.


Basically if you ever are converting to black and white - PLEASE don't just hit "desaturate"! It may look fine but it most likely can be made better by using the channel mixer or making a few layers with different contrasts. The image above was converted to black and white by making a low contrast layer on top of a high contrast layer and changing the blending modes and opacity till I reached what I wanted. Experimentation is key :)

Taking my pentax and a few rolls of film to Boston tomorrow :D Can't wait to share the results!
