Dramatic Light: Green Filtered B&W Male Portrait Challenge finished on Saturday, 23 Jan 2010 Photographers who have studied B&W have a pretty good idea how filters affect the final image. While the green filter gets used in some landscapes to lighten the foliage, it is also good for portraiture. It filters out excess blue and adds tone to pale complexions. The green filter was a favorite of bygone portrait photographers because it brought out those strong features in men. Start with a color portrait of a man (not a boy). Use your editing software to perform a color separation on the image and present the green filtered result. Note that the point of this challenge is to expand your understanding of how color can affect B&W images. Don't just process the image using no-brainer software tools, experiment with the green channel and really learn something.
Winner: "That Tree"
