Artborghi’s painted love for the Appenzell Alps of Switzerland: how to transform your best shots in black and white art
Artborghi is no painter, but still pretends being one by playing with digital photography. Click each of these pictures to enjoy the full details of a ink drawing-like.
By playing with black and white conversion values and thresholds , here are the results.
On the boat picture, the Säntis antenna is visible on one of the most picturesque peaks of Switzerland.
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
– 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!
