I am stopping with my experimenting with different B&W processing of my micro 4/3 images. I have reached the point where I am satisfied with a simple way to make images like these above from in-camera color jpegs. I may later do some more tweaking when/if I get some other lenses. In the meanwhile I will use my preset as a starting point when I wish to make B&W images. I’m finished with the easy part.
My main problem still exists and that is, why do I want to make pictures and of what? At this point, I don’t know what subjects to photograph and why to continue with my photography at Homewood other than to photograph the occasional Homewood events. I need to extend my photography with other ideas for my blog.
Since I most need to find different, additional reasons to photograph and to find other things to photograph, I have decided to temporarily switch from my Olympus E-M5 III camera to my Olympus TG-6 pocket camera. My intent is to carry the TG-6 all the time and make lots of images of whatever and everything as I experiment with coming up with different images, etc. I’ll use the TG-6 as a note keeper as I keep varying the point of view and subjects and hopefully try some new things.
You seem to have created a great mono recipe, lovely shots. The TG series takes great macro’s too, it can be a challenge coming up with new ideas for things to shoot. There’s a secondhand Pen-F is as new condition for sale that’s really tempting me for a small, light second body and sell my EM1 II.
