Taking a slight break from South African holiday posts, I wasDoing a bit of black and white work with this crab, shot in Mozambique a couple of years ago.
In these days of high colour digital photography it is easy to forget about black and white photography. An image with a bold shape and interesting texture is often a good choice for black and white. It should also have black, white, and avoid range of shadow in between.
I rather like this one! In fact I prefer it to the original, which you can see in the original post.
While the original processing was done on Darktable on Linux, the black and white conversion was done on Snapseed on the iPad 3. That’s a combination I really like.
