Shooting Color and Toning Black & White Images With Filters

For our seventh assignment, we were finally allowed to shoot in color. We were tasked to shoot a color photograph with strong and contrasting color and process that image three ways:

  • tone with correct color balance and saturation – neutral colors like white or gray should not have a color cast.
  • convert to well toned black and white image – use grade 2 b+w conversion in Aperture.
  • convert b+w with applied color filter in Aperture.

As well as submit a photograph for with color cast that influences the mood of the photograph. This was done by shooting a photo with either overcast – blue light skies or very warm light from sunset. Here is a photo I submitted for this assignment.
