For the past few months, I have been toying with the idea of even more minimalist imagery. It meant that I should retreat from colors, which are already making their presence felt in my work, by their near absence.
Rebecca Lily helped create a bespoke b&w preset for me – which was an adaption of the Tri-X look. But I wanted to take a few steps further – by exposing to the right, I wanted to bring luminance to my photos. Rebecca worked on three new variants of the original preset – normal, moody, and luminance.
The idea behind these would be to create b&w images that are true to what I like in my images and yet bring a different dimension to them. Rebecca picked the photo to showcase the version 2.0 of the original preset, and it made perfect sense that I kick off the account with this photo. I hope you like it as much as I do. The image was made in Yellowstone In December 2018. You see intentional camera movement to turn trees into brush strokes.
