I received a Photography book from Andrew for Father's Day, "The Essential Guide To Landscape Photography'. I have been reading it slowly, savouring it, and learning from it. I am on the chapter that teaches the various aspects of black and white landscape photography at the moment and I am inspired. I am going to try more of this in the future. I find that many times the light is not ideal for the photo I am aiming for, but often that very bad light for colour photographs is ideal for black and white. In fact, the bad weather that usually will keep a photographer indoors is what to look for when taking dramatic B&W photos. I am anxious to try some of the ideas when we go to Oroville next month. The skies can be quite dramatic there.
In the meanwhile, I am enjoying the run of the mill summer photos that I am taking and doing a bit of work on them in Photoshop.
