This is another in my low key and sporadic experiments in converting a digital colour file made with a digital camera into a black and white image:
The image of these granite rocks at Kings Head in Waitpinga is soft and gentle, but it still has some tonality. What surprises me is that it is not the usual muddy grey that normally happens when I have made these kind of conversions from the digital file produced by my older digital camera --a Sony NEX-7.
I have found that the recently acquired Sony a7R111 is much better in terms of producing a richer black and white tonality.
This is another example from the same photo session using the older Sony NEX-7:
These granite rocks at Kings Head do make for a good subject for experimenting with black and white photography, but so far I still still prefer using black and film. Often though it is just not practical to use a tripod in these situations.
