Like a lot of photographers I love black & white images. I explore color photographs in Photoshop and often convert them to monotone. There are so many different ways to convert full color into b&w that oftentimes I’ll spend an hour or so experimenting to see what resonates with me. Then I make a print or two and post them on my “wonder wall” to live with them for a while and see what works. It’s also a place where ideas go so I can wonder about them.
Mine is next to my workstation located in my former darkroom. Do you have a “wonder wall?”
