Old Well House

Take A Class With Dave & Dave

 

Week 10 / Assignment 1

Black & White Architecture (revisited) - A building or, better yet, some interesting detail on a building. And make it black & white (no sepia, no tinting, just black, white and shades of gray). Be sure to check out the Week 3 Tidbits thread for information on b/w conversion -- DON'T just convert to gray scale!

 

An old well house at the Gwynbrook State Farm No.1

 

Channel Mixer:

Monochrome

Red: 10%

Green: 80%

Blue: 10%

 

Added a touch of a vignette to "age" the photo a bit which fit in with the structure.

 

I did two of these. This one only slightly aged and another that looks like an even older photo.

 

Why A Favorite?

I had been wanting to shoot this building for awhile now. The black and white architecture assignemnt was the perfect excuse. In color it was nice, but I loved how it turned out in b&w.
