Weekly Black & White Square Photo

The Couple


This weeks B&W Square Photo was taken from last Saturday's Photo Walk. I met this interesting couple who, together, were out photographing in the walk and I thought that they would make a good subject for a B&W photo. I think I was correct.

They were very nice and very pleasant with which to talk, and I felt comfortable and honored to be able to speak with them for awhile. They are a very nice couple and very good photographers.

Basically it was taken with a DSLR and an 18 - 70mm lens, ISO was 400 shot at 1/180 sec @ f/5.6. Original was a color jpeg file cropped and converted to B&W in Photoshop Elements. I added a little vignetting with some extra burning in here and there. At this point I saved it as a PSD file and after resizing it for the Internet a touch of sharpening was added to compensate for the loss do to the smaller size.

I had a great time on the Photo Walk and was privileged to meet a number of very good photographers. It was fun exchanging stories with them and I felt I grew as a photographer just from being in their company. My world always has something going on and this was one of the better moments in it.

Yeah, this is my world and you are welcome to it.
