Interior photography. It's all about the details. And details are great in black and white.
Lose the colour and you have other things to interest the eye.
This black and white conversion was produced using Nik Silver Efex Pro.
I have not saved the details of what I did to this image but the colour filters did not work and I probably use one of the full spectrum type presets. Yes I'm waffling, I can't remember.....
Back to the shot. And what I wanted the black and white image to focus on in this black and white conversion.
Sad as I am I was drawn to the timber cladding the columns. The smooth white worktop provided a textural contrast, and the two formed a natural frame for the bright green chairs which gave the newly refurbished space a big lump of colour.
Composition always so important.
Obviosuly the colour is lost in the black and white version, but the detail is there if the cladding, a subtle but effective design feature.
I like this image. It has depth and texture to it. This is not easy to achieve under LED ceiling fitted lights!
The black and works in a completely different way from the colour version.
Thank you for reading this post and please call back to my blog tomorrow at http://www.rickmcevoyphotography.co.uk/blog for another architectural photography image.
