Short story. On Sunday I went to the amazing workshop by Fer Juaristi held in Dublin. As part of the workshop we had to set our camera viewfinders to black & white only so that we wouldn’t be distracted by colours and instead just to concentrate on the shapes and light – afterall the shots would be in RAW format and the colour can then be seen and edited in the post processing. All good. Today I thought I’d take this lesson with me when I went to Dunmore East with Dee. I took a ton of photos, all using the black and white viewfinder method. Just one small (rather large) problem – when I got home all of the photos were in jpg because the Fuji X-T1 switches to jpg if you use the low ISO mode – which I had done, all, day, long. Doh. So no colour recovery for me. Very annoying as I was really looking forward to the blue skies and bright vibrant colours of Dunmore East like the yellow painted lines and deep green railings. Oh well, there’s always a next time and at least I still learnt a very valuable lesson. Anyway. Here are some black and white shots that really should have been in colour. Pretend it’s the olden days.
