I asked myself today... what if I play with some of my photographs of Aurora Borealis, the Northern Lights and check them out in Black & White?
Initially I thought that won't be good and appealing at all as those magical green to violet colors would simply go away and ruin the perception of the whole picture. But as it usually happens, some of the photos, that I actually didn't plan to publish at all, ever, showed their shapes, hidden under the otherwise saturated colors. So I saw a few interesting things after post-processing some photos earlier today:
I captured a couple of meteors :) (the 3rd long-exposure)
I can see the radiation falling/bombarding from the Sun and trying to penetrate the shield of our Earth
I saw few shapes that unleashed my imagination ;)
I am also sharing a not-so-successful self-portrait, I didn't set the focal plane properly. :D :P Still, I am touching It! :))) And just in case you're curious, I made all those long-exposure Aurora photos in Iceland. It caught us by surprise, so no planning in advance and no fancy foregrounds. :D Except for myself, of course :D
You probably know by now how much I love Black & White or sometimes referred as Monochromatic photography. I have always believed that while Color Photography shows the external part of our world, Black and White Photography shows the soul, the inner hidden side of everything.
