Joe Patti’s Seafood Market in Pensacola is a great place to buy all kinds of delicious seafood…and a wonderful place to take photographs too. But when you take a photograph, the scene you saw may not be the one you finally printed on paper. This scene was one of about 20 different photos I took with both a film and a digital camera. You are confronted by not only what size to make the print…but how to make it as well.
After selecting the photograph I liked best, I was undecided how I wanted to make the print.
Let me show you what happened. Here is the photograph I selected, a digital one, and it is in color. It is very colorful.
Here is the same scene converted to black & white. Not too bad.
Now, here is what I did with it in color. I like this.
And here is the finished color print in black & white. It almost become a “line drawing” type of photo.
I like the ones I vignetted to give a softer appearance. The color vignetted print was my final choice. It will look especially nice on a watercolor paper. It will also make nice note cards too.
