How to photo retouch your pale shots into real black&white art

artborghi boost black and white comparison
Let’s say you had a wonderful day on the snow, though without too much sunlight. Most colours in your pictures look like 70s’ toilet paper (pale blue, pale green, pale brown and so on). Pity, you could have had so beautiful shape/contrast silhouette with those black trees, people and white snow background.

It is time to open your photo retouch software and pimp your snow day:

– convert to black and white
– choose maximum whites
– enhance the contrast with blacks
– level blacks and whites up

In this way you get real black and white pictures and not boring shadows of grey. Dare with dark blacks and white whites the more you can and let the atmosphere you enjoyed pop out of your art!

Fashion photography at a glance: details make the difference

When talking about upper class parties, details are mostly relevant. On one side, peculiar dress code makes most of the event. Nevertheless, don’ forget dressing up times: they are the perfect overture to a real glamour party. Click here for the full reportage of the gorgeous Black&White party we joined yesterday night.

Swiss reportage with true Russian folklore

Reportage: Matrjoshka 10 years jublee, Zürich, Switzerland

Two cameras (450D and 60D) mounting two different objectives (70-300mm and 17-55mm), battery backups for each camera and 32 GB total SD card space.

Ready for another Russian folklore event in Zürich!

This time I was asked to shoot the 10th jubilee of the Russian school Matrjoschka. I know what you could have in mind: shows good only for kids … but it was absolutely not the case. Music and costumes and dancers and singer and players and actors made the big difference! I got quite crazy shooting with two cameras at the same moment for 2h and a half, the 450D got stuck in guru meditation (aka busy) several times for the amount of saved data but everything went smooth. Judge it for yourself by clicking on the post picture or here. My favorite ones are kids waiting to perform on the stage.
