I love black and white photos. They allow you to focus on the subject of the image without being distracted by colors. If I could, I would post most of my drift coverage in black and white, but that’s not very practical. People want color, people demand color, so that’s what you give them. What’s the next best solution? Muting the colors so they’re not so distracting.
We’re going to start with this image of Peter Taylor I took at EVD95. I’ve already done a few adjustments in Lightroom, but this is roughly what it looked like coming out of the camera.
