"January Contest - B&W Closeups"
Tue 01-Jan-13 01:37 PM by Valentino

US
          

This months theme is your Black and White closeups. When color is removed from a picture texture, contrast and shapes is what is left. Those qualities can sometimes be overshadowed, pun intended, by vibrant colors. For this contest we are going with color, Yes, sepia or tinted pictures are permitted. The subject itself is open but as always it should be a well composed and well exposed/lit.

There are many ways to create a B&W result. Many people like Nik Silver Effects plugins. I use the less expensive Topaz B&W Effects. Photoshop, Lightroom, Aperture and pretty much every other photo software has B&W tools and all of these are usually better than simply converting a picture to grey scale. A tip on Photo filters is that the color of the filter will brighten/lighten that color (range) in the image which can selectively add to existing contrast. This is particularly useful with flower images.

RULES:
--Post up to 7 images but only one image/post
--Include shooting info so we can learn from each other
--Previously posted images are welcome but not previous contest winners
--When posting please do so by hitting the ‘reply’ link below this top post, not the reply link to another post.
--Include a title in the subject line
--Capture must be shot with a Nikon camera and any lens
--Comments are welcome but NO public critiquing, i.e., how to make it better. This is a contest so PM's are a better way to offer feedback
--WARNING Posts that do not meet the spirit of the challenge will not be selected as finalists and may be periodically removed by the moderators without notice

The top images will be selected by the previous months winner and be included in a poll for members to vote for the winning photo. The winning image will be added to the Macro Contest Winners Gallery

I wanted to think of not only a black and white conversion but a black and white subject as well. I also wanted to use all Nikon equipment instead of my Elinchrom lighting. D700, 105VR at F/16, 1/160. SB-910 overhead with a large Rogue Flash bender and Softbox shooting through another translucent reflector. Back right is an SB-900 with a Honl snoot. Controlled by an SU-800. Post in LR$ and SC-6.

I have to say I am happy to see the entries here, considering the low amount of traffic,or at least comments, the B&W forum seems to get compared to ones like A Picture I Took and Pets and Family. Some very nice images being posted here.

The fence extended between two pillars and was apparently designed to keep people from sitting on the ledge.

Thanks Dan! Glad you like it.
Refections are always an issue with helical, worm or bevel gears: you always get a highlight somewhere in the tooth due to its curved shape. This becomes critical when you need to capture the meshing contact path.
But beyond work, I like the shapes and I think gears make a good b&w subject. I may post a couple more if I find some spare time.
Kind regards,

Jordi
