D117: Desert Star

I’ve really come to love black & white prints after seeing an Ansel Adams exhibit a few months ago. Since then I’ve read many articles on black & white techniques.

Here’s a technique that I haven’t read about but is something that I do to almost every black & white image I make. I add a subtle touch of sepia tone to warm the image and take that cold grey feeling away. After I’ve process the image to black & white and flatten the layers, I apply a sepia filter of 10%-20% density over the image. I typically apply greater sepia density if it’s an image of people or other living things. I apply approximately 10% sepia density to subjects like architecture or other static subjects. This is just a rule of thumb and you should add sepia filter to achieve the feel you want.
