Photography 101: Architecture

“Study architectural forms, and also train your eye to look for shots that will translate well in black and white.”

I know that black and white can change the tone of a picture but I didn’t expect the results I got.

The first photo was taken from the outlook on the top of the Empire State Building. I felt like the crossbars stood out more in the black and white photo and the city scene seemed to fade a little.

I feel like the entire feel of the bridge picture changed when I used to infrared on it.

And last of all-

I felt like this was the most dramatic of the three. In the color photo, the blue of the sky seems to be where your eye is drawn. The same photo in black and white and that blue sky no longer blue changed the entire tone. The sky appeared much darker and it seems as if the Dakota is not the focus.

    1. I wasn’t sure if I should include the original- there’s always that chance that someone will say- “Wow, you should have just left that alone!” lol
