Experimental photography...

Fellow blogger and photographer extraordinaire Jamqueen sent me instructions on how to turn part of a photograph into black and white, leaving another part in color. Her examples were very impressive, so I was curious about trying some on my own...which she wanted to see. So here are a couple of my efforts, Ann...and, no, Coca-Cola is not paying me to do these...lol. I just happened to love the contrast in color/non-color. This could be addicting...and I would love to see what others can offer in this area...especially with Isla photos!

Thanks, Ann! This was fun!

Oh, that is so cool! I also have a picture of that old Coca-Cola table on the beach. But I'd be way too inexperienced to do that! Great job!

Jamqueen said...

Wonderful! Glad you enjoyed trying this technique! More! More!

Oooh - those are wonderful. I really love the second one, all the detail in the b&w behind the umbrella. Yes, please do more, both you and Ann!

Thank you! Beck...it's very easy...with all your photos, you could have a field day!

Nice, very nice. The detail in the second pic sure stands out now. I would have like to have seen the originals for comparisons sake.

The problem with everyone knowing how to do this is that we will have bloggers only posting their versions until we could gag. As it is, just a few of us knowing this technique keeps it fresh. So tell me how to do this! LOL!

PS. I have only seen this done with reds. Does it work with other colors too?
