As photographers and videographers we are always looking for a new way to present our work that creates differentiation and tells the story in a unique way. In this article I’m going to go in depth at converting a colour photograph to black and white.

If flowers are naturally beautiful, we need to push that farther to make a compelling story. Your mission, should you decide to accept it, is to challenge yourself to make a floral triptych. How you build it is your business but here’s a workflow to consider.

The Exposure Triangle is a continuous entity. A change to any value necessitates a change to at least one, perhaps both of the other elements. If we want a higher shutter speed, then either we have to open the aperture or increase the ISO or some combination of the two. When we shoot in full automatic, the camera’s CPU is doing all the work for us based on the meter reading. That’s great, right up until we choose to take a bit more creative control of the triangle.
