As many of you know, my background in photography is based in classic b&w work, and old-fashioned film. As you probably also know, most of the recent galleries being shown in the Archive are shot with digital cameras, in color. Today's update is an example of a digital series, converted to black & white in the computer, and the result is really quite nice. The gallery of Nela P3BW is mostly the same set as the earlier Nela photos, with some simple adjustments done in Photoshop. For those interested in these things, you may want to compare this set to the recent Natalie (Set 2) gallery, which was originally shot with b&w film and then scanned. Although there are some of us who still love the look of a distinct film grain from a scanned negative, I think you can see why the new technology will soon replace the film world altogether. The b&w conversions from the digital files are beautiful, if done correctly, so we may as well get used to it. (One caveat: there is still nothing in the digital world like a well done, hand-made b&w fiber print)
