Getting gritty B/W and colors OOC
Dec 13, 2011


I am working on getting some gritty and hard-edged/contrasty B/W and color results with OOC JPGs, especially when lighting does not really support this look by itself. Here is a quick set of handheld shots that document my efforts. Anyone with enough leisure time and experience with how these things should look please comment.

At this time I will not point out my personal favorite in the B/W line, but wait for unbiased feedback first.

Obviously I also have to work on getting white-balance in mixed lighting (fluorescent + flash) under control. The cabinet to the left is not yellowish and the wall is not orange (but red). Interestingly holding the camera just very slightly different has quite an impact.

Thanks in advance!
