I'm so glad you found me! I'm a San Francisco photographer, and this blog charts my journey in the ever-evolving world of photography. One of the things I love about photography is that it's a journey, not a destination. I'm constantly learning and meeting wonderful people. Please peruse the blog to your heart's content, then check out my website and feel free to contact me! (I love hearing from you.)

Day 155 (August 13) - Black and White

Playing with Black and White conversions today, feedback from those more experienced with B&W would be appreciated, as I'm a babe in the woods when it comes to doing without color. I tried to keep a clean look for them, but maybe the blacks are too black?

I am having trouble deciding which I like better for the second image (from yesterday's post). I love the color one (as I said) but I think maybe this simplifies the message in a way that might be needed.

What do you think? Don't hold your punches. Praise is great, but you don't learn anything from it.


  1. B&W is always better (except for simple snapshots).

    Black is never too black, as long as you can still see detail. You have a good range of blacks


  2. I think I like the b&w better. At first I thought color, but the b&w really looks so clean! I don't think, however, that b&w is always better- color is alive!


I love comments! I read and cherish every single one. Go ahead, make my day.
