Working in Black and White


It seems like I’m always taking photos for the product reviews I do, but I don’t always take the time to do “fun” photography.  Experimental stuff – photos with no particular purpose in mind.  It’s important to do…it gets you out of ruts and expands your creativity as a photographer.

Today I had the day off from the “day job” so I decided to do some fun photography – unlike my teenage son, my dogs are always more more than willing to be photographic subjects.  I decided to experiment a bit with some black and white filters on these photos – what do you think?  The photos were taken with my Canon 100mm macro lens mated to my Canon 5D Mark II.  Post processing was done in Lightroom 4, Photoshop CS6, and OnOne Phototools 2.6.   Remember, you can click on the photos to see them larger.
