Black and White Portraits

A Portrait Study in Black and White

Beautifully Natural Portraits

We were recently in Los Angeles on assignment at the Adobe Max conference. As well known experts in our field, we love to give back through education. Adobe Max provided an opportunity to do just that. On this day we would be working in Black and White with model Jennie Carroll. Our job… To create expressive portraits on the new Panasonic Lumix G9. They say the camera doesn’t make the photograph, and that is absolutely true. However, not all cameras are equal when it comes to black and white, and it just so happens that our latest camera systems have some features built in that allow us to create black and white photographs reminiscent of the film days. There are organic grain options built into the camera, on top of a wide selection of creative black and white presets which we can dial in to our personal tastes. He we dialed in an orange filter which gave beautiful milky white skin tones and made the darks stand out. On a few below, check out the film grain… It’s looks incredibly filmic! It’s nice to see film grain again that looks real in black and white imagery…
