2017 Boyce Thompson Arboretum Black and White Photography

December 13, 2017


Hi everyone! Christmas is coming closer and so is the end of the year. I need to admit, I’ve run out of ideas on what to talk about in the final weeks of 2017. I already have plans (Or a half of a plan) on what to talk about in 2018, but I do not want to talk about them until January. So, as a filler, I’m going back into my old photographs I took in 2017 and have some fun editing them in Photoshop.

This post is about the photographs I took at the Boyce Thompson Arboretum, which are color photographs, and convert them to black and white in Photoshop. I did this for two reasons: First, I wanted to post and sell the black and white photos in my Society6 shop and secondly because I wanted a print of a black and white photograph I could hang on my wall. I couldn’t find one I liked a lot, so I ended up making my own!

All the photos I chose to turn black and white are my favorite photos I took at the Boyce Thompson Arboretum. Not all of the photos looked good as black and white, so I ended up not posting them on Society6.

Here are the black and white photos along with the links to the art prints on Society6. There are more products available with each photograph on them, but I did not want to post a link to every single product.

Overall, I’m very happy with the way the photos looked like. Some of them remind me of Ansel Adams, which really surprised me! I feel so inspired by the way the photos turned out I plan on turning more colored photos I took in 2017 into black and white photos.

As of this post, I do not know which photograph want to hang on my wall. I have an idea which one I want a print of, but I’m still not 100% sure. I think I’ll make my decision some time next year.

That’s all for now! Thank you for reading!
