These 2 were taken about a month ago with my Panasonic FZ20, on camera flash, and touched up in photoshop for this challenge..





The noise you see in the top photo was added in to try and simulate high grain b&w film. It is Not from the camera.

Comments welcome, Enjoy..

very nice

not exactly b/w because of the toning but it works for the images!

very nice candid shots i like the noise in the first

they look a bit soft, but that's probably due to slow shutter in a dark room..

Well, Technically, Toning is a method Frequently used in a b&w dark room. But, if you are looking for absolutely no color then you are correct. Yes, they are a little soft.. With this kid you have to be quick on the shutter. I tried several different methods of turning them b&w but most did nothing for me and I shoot a LOT of b&w film. If you can suggest some pp methods that don't require photoshop 7 or CS, I'd be happy to take another stab.. Probably with different photos as I had to remove some nasty shadows with the second one.

Thanks for the comments guys..

Jeff

I guess I should have explained, I use photoshop 5 which has a channel mixer. I used the saturation adjustment for the first 2 photos. The one of the dog was done with optikverves virtual photographer (plugin).. I Have downloaded GIMP but haven't loaded it yet..

Thanks,
Jeff

well, i've found channel mixer to be the best...

and then there's gradient maps...which you change the shades the gradient goes to to effect the tones that come out in the image...

it's hard to explain..but thats another alternative...

you can also just use channel mixer, and play with curves (or levels) to add contrast...and effect tones that way

and, since you shoot film, you probably know about dodging and burning..that would work too..
