Black & White

Have you have ever taken a picture where you think that the composition and lighting are just right but the picture isn’t quite what you had hoped for ?

Why not try converting the image into black & white ? You don’t need to have expensive software to do this; if you are using a Mac then iPhoto does a great job, if you are on a PC then Picasa is free download and can help you to get more from your pictures.

Here are a few of my favourite black & white shots though I must make a confession…the photograph of Dave Swarbrick is not my own ! My son, Sam, took this with my camera when we went to hear Swarb play at Pontardawe in South Wales. I like this picture so much I am adding it to the gallery with his blessing… thanks Sam.
