This is the third and final photograph I am going to post from the recent trip to the Pinnacles at Cape Woolamai in Victoria. I rarely do black and white images; I just see the world in colour and its colour that usually catches my eye and appeals to me in a photograph. It’s not that I don’t appreciate a really good black and white image – because I certainly do; and I am very glad there are photographers out there who specialise in this classic medium (and very glad of publications such as LensWork). That said, I new this image would be black and white before I even released the shutter. I was clambering over the boulders waiting for the light to improve when I spied one boulder that was much lighter in colour than all of those around it – the odd one out. It just screamed black and white to me and as I have learned it is usually best to go with my first instinct for a photograph. So, I framed it, shot it and converted it to greyscale in Lightroom and set about some minimal dodging and burning. I have also applied a very subtle tint to the final photograph. The shot works in colour as well, but its the black and white tones that simplify and enhance this photograph for me.
