Please, Willie, Donald and others who work in black and white conversions -
I have been working with black and white conversions and trying different techniques. I read in another thread ( and I forget who to give credit to), that b&w should consist of absolute blacks and absolute whites. To try this out, I created seperate b&w layers for each, and created a brightness/contrast layer to help adjust contrast.
Does this work, or is there a standard formula to apply for conversions?
I shot this in manual, 1/200, F6.3, ISO 400, no flash.
I tried a tighter crop, but I thought it just began to look busy.
Thank you for looking, and taking the time to comment/critique.
