    From my experience I would say you are totally a wise man. I wish I would have figured that out sooner.

    So i finally got to look some more at the photos from yesterday... First time out with this lens, it was dark and grey most of the day so i had to shoot at iso1600 on a 15 year old dslr so there is a little more noise in the pictures than what i would have liked, but at least its proof of concept until the sun shines again...

    First the deer pics i whent for...

    I really wanted the white one with the big antlers in this picture to stand up, but when dealing with nature, nature does what nature wants...

    Yeah, you really have to think in more of an abstract manner for B&W. I still shoot B&W on film from time to time.

    Todays photoproject is something i had wanted to do for a while and sometime back we got a vintage desk in some dark wood that made the perfect background for what i had envisioned...

    I decided to do some edits in black and white because i felt it would go along nicely with the crime noir feel i was going for...

    First up is to different variations of the 'security set'
