Margot, b&w conversion

7 09 2010

Earlier this summer, I posted the color original of this portrait of a friend’s daughter. This one is on my top ten list of favorite portraits I’ve shot recently. When I shot film, I shot mostly Ilford b&w and loved the results I got with portrait shoots. I converted this image using b&w actions from a Totally Rad Actions set. Which image do you prefer—color or b&w—and why?

B&W brings out her skin and eyes…

Burstmode, I agree! I loved the color shot…but then when I converted it to b&w, I really love the shot then. Funny how that is!

The color one is softer in feel, the b&w one more dramatic. Maybe I like the b&w one better, but it’s a close contest.
