Photoshop black-and-white landscape techniques

Black-and-white photographs have always been considered the “fine art” of photography. There are some collectors and purists who, for reasons that aren’t completely understood, think traditional black and white is the only true art form for photography. Personally, I’ve never believed that for a second. Besides, I personally like color, and I’m of the opinion that art is what you make of it. The most important question to ask yourself as a nature photographer is, why should I limit myself to either black and white or color? Do both!

I am not a storm chaser as such but when the opportunity presents itself I certainly do try to take advantage of the moment without getting fried in the process!!

Basic Camera Care

Whether you use a film or digital camera, point and shoot or SLR, there are some basic tenets of camera care that cross all spectrums. These basics are very similar to proper lens care.

1. Dirt
2. Shock
3. Water
