Digital Black and White, Who cares?

Black and White Photography, where have you gone? You’re like a colorized version of Casablanca. A classic, ruined by digital technology. Hey folks, it doesn’t have to be that way. If you’re a purist, well you still shoot black and white film, and I’m not talking to you. But, if you’re of the many who shoot digitally, you can still have black and white without dusting off the film camera. Excuse the sales pitch but, we can make black and whites from your digital camera files. And, we print on the good stuff, Ilford Multi Contrast Paper.

It doesn’t matter how we do it. It looks great. So if you miss silver based prints, contrast, blacks, and whites and all the good stuff in between, give this service a try. Ask for True Black and White from your digital camera files.

So who the hell cares??? It seems very few of you. We’ve had this product out there for a year now, and while we have a growing clientele for digital black and white, most shooters either don’t get the concept, or just live in a splashy colorized universe. There is more to photography than just documenting images, that’s what video is for. How ’bout trying to make some art, or just something old school and interesting. Am I bitter? No, I just miss traditional photography which for me means black and white.

My message here is that it’s still available and easy to have even with a digital camera. So, think black and white. You can still have your flowers and trees, your faces, your landscapes and farmhouses, even sunsets. You’ll be surprized how much you can see without the “distraction” of all that color.

    Here Here! I sent some digital files to you guys for printing in b&w and I was impressed (to say the very least) at the quality. I thought for sure I would be filing the photos in the shoebox in the back corner of my closet, but they were such wonderful quality I ordered some enlargements – and they looked amazing too. I’m thrilled to be able to have such superb b&w prints from my digital camera…..who would’ve thunk? You guys are ace 🙂

    It would be interesting to read more details about this and some tips for converting color images to get the best looking contrast, etc. On your site it says “don’t worry about converting the image” – but it seems most people are going to want to see what their image looks like in B/W before paying to get it printed. If that’s the case, what steps to go through in Photoshop that will simulate what the end print will look like? Thanks!
