Going to the Basics

I have seen some beautiful black and white photographs, so I have decided to on my monochrome techniques. After reading about the techniques on how to make a good black and white photograph I learned to consider the basics of photography; contrast, lighting, etc.. The article detailed many fundamental steps to improve my ability to both take and manipulate monochrome photographs.

In the process of working with one of my photographs I discovered how to do "antiqueing" the color of my pictures. I loved the results. The only way to get better at after processing work is to explore all the options. It can be tedious, but it is truly the best way.
