    "Those are great, J!"

    Thanks, it was a bit hit and miss trying to take self portraits at arms length.
    I bought the stripbox for one specific type of picture (which i could do with just window light but i would have the background elements included which i dont want) and the picture is one i have seen by Damien Lovegrove which is a woman lying on a leather sofa and the light coming from behind and above only. Looks fantasic and i want a picture of my wife in this pose. Im also looking into buying a studio strobe as having a modelling light could really be beneficial. Still i enjoy the practice. Thanks for taking the time to comment.

    Thanks, Rafael.

    As I stated earlier, in another thread (those were reflected UV captures), nothing has changed. These are infrared captures with a hacked (modified) GH-2, live view and all.

    This is the reject; much sharper (50mm shift stopped down vs the not-too-crisp 35 wide open). But the composition is scattered and doesn’t come together as well [I think].



    Exported as a TIFF from C1; opened in Preview (OSX) and saved as a JPEG.



    Exported as a maximum-quality JPEG from C1; opened in Preview (OSX) and saved as a JPEG (with more compression). Wow!

    I went to the Deep Ellum Arts Festival in Dallas last night. I only took one camera and one lens and decided to shoot in B&W. Here are two from the GH2 and the Leica 25mm

    I love the look of your images. Are you HDR-ing or something?

    Bill, I will have to document what I do.. of course every photo is different but what I most often do is adjust contrast via tone mapping. I don't use any HDR programs. There are a number of plugins for Photoshop that will handle the tone mapping for you... but.....

    Here is a link to an article that got me started with tone mapping emulation just using the tools that come with Photoshop: Tone Mapping Emulation - Tutorials

    Using the above method takes longer but does not require a plugin or other software.. You can automate the process to a degree using an action but once you've done it a time or two it's pretty simple to do by hand.

    Of course I also dodge and burn and use adjustment layers such as curves. I use the B&W adjustment layer quite often rather than converting from color to B&W during the RAW process.

    Thanks a lot Jim. I'll check out that tutorial now. I appreciate the detailed response. Looks like I have some homework to do now.

    Bill, one other note. NIK software Silver EFEX Pro 2 may be the best solution. I had the original version of that software several years ago and it does a great job, especially with the tonal contrast adjustment tool. It is a bit pricey but probably will allow you to achieve the same results I get without having to do it all by hand. I was using the demo version. I suggest you download the demo from their website and play with it. They offer a 15 day trial. You can get it here: The World's Leading Black and White Software

    One thing I forgot to mention is that I add "glow" to many of my B&W shots, just a touch of it, not to much, and it is probably why some say the photo looks like a painting.. it has a smoothing effect, a characteristic that I really like on B&W shots.

    Thanks Jim. I actually have Silver Efex Pro, but I haven't really experimented with the different settings. I guess I should do that. And thanks for the tip on adding "glow." I'll definitely try that too. I appreciate all the help.

    I've posted several more here:
