Re-editing

The adventures with lightroom continues!

So today, I made a concentrated effort to develop a preset that emulates the look of black and white film, and for the most part, I think I achieved the look I wanted. Creating this preset reminded me how much I love everything about black and white photography.

For me, it really forces you to reconstruct the color behind the scene, for black and white photography as well as editing leaves the color behind (obviously) and focuses on the stark details and richness of the moment. It allows you to dive deep into the details of the scene, rather than being preoccupied with the color of the scene, creating a stronger connection with the photograph itself.

I applied this preset to a collection of aquarium photographs that I shot over last year to show the versatility, beauty, and strength of black and white in everyday circumstances.
