If I'll stop trying ...

I went to B&W presentation by Marc Koegel. I must say I went in with very mixed fillings . For me B&W is often looked upon with quite a bit too much respect. Often the perceived sophistication is based on what interior designer said not what one likes. Many people like the B&W just like they like old cars and model trains …. they all reminds them childhood and happier times. The B&W is “artsy” but often used as concealment of poor colors or details . I was very impressed with his work . He is using very long exposures , even in the middle of the day . I have one more toy on my list Natural Density filter (ND) but 6 and 10 stops ( huge ) . This will let me take long exposures during the day.
