Weekend Maastricht & Mechelen photos.
Below are some of the photos of our recent weekend trip with the fotoacademie (photo academy). In our assignments all of our photos had to be in black and white. Of course I like to edit in color too, although I have to say that I’m starting to like to preview my photos in black and white, this way you can really see what the light does in your photo. If you preview your photo in color (on your camera) it’s harder to see what light there is because of the many colors that is distracting you. In black and white you have either blacks or whites to look at and it’s easier to judge the light this way (my opinion).
Don’t shoot .jpg though! because this wil give you an actual black and white photo if you transfer it to your pc. If you shoot RAW it will be in color on your pc, it’s just the preview on your camera that gives you the black and white look (when ‘Monochrome’ is selected).
