Thanks for the welcome and you are right it is along time since we met in Yosemite. It was a wonderful end to a long trip for us even just enough snow thrown in for comfort.
I can understand Michael Adams having a problem with photography.

First I have got to admit the lesson is a combination of ma and Kath she helped me a lot putting it together and persuading me to join PF. As for the coming of digital I was the same as you did not want to know then kath updated her digital camera and I would have a play with her old one thats how I got into digital.

First thank you for the welcome to PF.
I have being a lover of B&W photography for many years. From having a Darkroom to digital. I see in colour as you everyone else but on occasions just look at a possible shot and say thats B&W must be down to the years I have being taking B&W.

First thank you for the welcome to PF. Also thank you for the two tips I must give them a try. I Am also glad you like photograph No 10 as this one to me is a play with a big stopper filter I bought and do not use to much.

First thank you for the welcome. I am glad you like the lesson and I hope it makes it a bit more clear for you to understand. I some times take it for granted as I have being taking B&W pictures for a lot of years. I keep getting reminded of this form Kath who has not done a lot of B&W. Kath helped me with the tutorial as I am afraid I don't make a good teacher.

First thank you for the welcome to PF. I hope the lesson helps you but Ansel Adams is a master at B&W.
Have a good weekend Rob.

Thanks for the comments. In the Uk i find winter light good foe B&W and as you say for colour sunset and sunrise are a must but with B&W you can get away with shooting all day due to the low sun.

Thanks Phil Dramatic light works well with B&W sometimes it means going out to shoot when maybe you would not bother due to weather conditions.
Hope you both keeping well.

Everlasting wrote in 2014/02/25 13:12:15: Thanks for the feedback Kath. I will start from today saving in large format tiff. At the moment if I do sell a photo or need to print I rework again for RAW and send that.
I have just upgraded to PS 6, after working with elements for so long. I know I am only using less than a third of its capability, it's just a question or having the time to learn. I put so much faith and trust in Nikon, and having a new D7100 in my hands now, I hope that getting in right in camera will mean less pp. but yes, I do need to learn more.

Elaine the reason to save as tiff is because there is no compression, so no file information (hence quality) is lost. Jpeg compresses the image ,as you rightly say, to save space and loses information and quality in the process. Initially the loss of quality is not visible to the eye, but say you want to re-work the image at a later date, you save as jpeg again and more quality is lost with more compression... and so-on. The other thing by reducing the size to 2500px, if you later want to print, the file might not be big enough. In your case I'm sure you often get asked for sales?? Having the largest files at the highest quality would get you more money.
For instance, I've just sold a print of one of my images 16" x 12". If I only had a small jpeg file it wouldn't have been good enough to print that size.
Hope this explains.

robfeath wrote in 2014/02/25 12:10:50: Hello Elaine.First thank you fore the lovely comments. Kath has being trying for awhile to get me to join so when I was asked to do the Lesson in B&W i thought why not. As for your questions
1 Yes I use Lightroom a lot and a large amount of my work gets done in it.
2 I always use Raw and save Tiff. Worked images get saved in Tiff too so I can make adjustment's at a later date if required. This takes up more storage space so I store onto two external hard drives..
3 As for online lessons no as kath's the teacher not me.
I love the pictures you take of the East .

Thanks for your comments. Sometimes a colour picture dose not jump out at you and say B&W.
The one I have used hear is a favourite of mine in colour and took me along time before I turned it B&W and I like it even more now.
