“Greetings from Scotland!
I’ve recently found your blog, reading with interest your articles on the NEX 6 and lenses for it. Great work!
I noticed the theme for February is black and white; I hope I’m not too late to join in … I’ve only just started exploring B/W again. Nostalgia perhaps? I’m old enough to remember when ‘monochrome’ was the only ‘colour’ on offer! So I was happy to enjoy the explosion of colour into my photographs, especially as digital got seriously good. But there is a subtlety and nuance that B/W can offer in todays digital cameras … so I’m taking a new look.
Frost on bushes Dec 2011
(Nature’s own B/W)
This shot was NOT taken in B/W, but the result is nature’s own B/W! There are just a few dabs of colour from berries, and light catching leaves … but the deep frost just served up a ‘winter monochrome’ ;o). This was shot using a Sony HX1 bridge camera. Settings used: Auto F/4 ISO-160. Focal length 19mm Shutter speed 1/125 sec.”
A great find Elizabeth, and thank you for finding us and sharing this with us. More of Elizabeth’s work can be found at her Flickr photo stream – worth a look!
