Black & White conversion
Well, just when I thought I'd made a pretty clean escape from blog land for awhile, think again . . .
Found an email from a certain Kim Klassen (of whom we all love and want to hug tightly as can be, because she rocks!), with a wonderful, thought provoking quote (here we go with the quotes again, they just keep bombarding me these days, no matter where I go) in it, and . . . well . . . there you have it. That's all it took. Thanks, Kim and bless you a hundred times over for it.
So, this weeks assignment is to take a color image and convert it into a black and white image. Here is my attempt at doing that. This photo, though, wasn't taken with my camera. Instead I used my scanner to capture the image you see above. I then used PSE9 (yes, I have PS5 but it still scares me, so I putz around in PSE9 still) to covert the image above into a black & white one. I simply used the Urban/Snapshot conversion choice and played around with the sliders a bit until I got something I liked. Viola! That's it.
I am looking forward to learning more about black & white conversion from Kim this week and, as always, am looking forward to seeing what all of you have been up to with your black & white conversions!
