I love experimenting with black and white. There’s something striking and atmospheric about a good black and white photograph, and lately I have become more and more intrigued by this medium. Converting to back and white tends to allow you to see if the composition and the elements within the frame stand on their own merit without all of the pretty colors that sometimes catch our eye. Here are a couple of images from my recent morning in Acadia – a few that I thought might translate well to black and white. When it comes to black and white, I find myself wanting to boost the contrast between the darker and lighter areas within the photrograph. I like those deep, dark blacks, and in these particular compositions, I really like how the highlights on those famous round rocks of Boulder Beach are accentuated.
