CONVERTING TO BLACK AND WHITE
Derek Doar from Nottingham and Notts C.C. gave an in depth talk on the conversion process using the latest Adobe C.C. software (available at £10 per month). He demonstrated the task on Abandoned Dwelling and The Lady Bower Dam projected images.
He also showed various prints depicting Anglesey, Spurn Point, Lindisfarne and the Outer Hebrides, highlighting techniques such as HDR and bracketing exposures, using 5 images in camera raw plus C.C. software.
There is quite a bit of information to gather in order to proceed with this project, such as the much acclaimed software Silver E Fex with Detail Extractor, but there’s no doubting the much improved finished article for those wishing to explore.
To help and advise on the process Derek, who we thank for sharing his vast knowledge with us, has kindly supplied his own contact information shown below. His enthusiasm and willingness to help was plain to see, and hopefully there will be much interest from the members.
