Try saying that three times fast. While going through my files and moving them from the hard drive to the dedicated for photos external hard drive I had an itch to try monochrome images again after yesterday’s church door. But instead of architecture I decided to go with humans. As this was the first file in the group I worked on the muddy people from Scottsdale, Arizona’s Mighty Mud Mania event; and I liked the end results. Using a bit of a high contrast effect to the black and white conversion the images really seem to stand out to me.
I’m not sure if mud looks better in color or not – perhaps it does as it has that muddy color in color – but in black and white the textures of the mud itself and on people truly stands out.
