Emerging Black and White
Recently, with the purchase of a Canon G15 to replace my G5 (of blessed memory) I have found myself converting some images to black and white and really liking the results. In my mind I struggle with this, the "purist" says "No,no, this is the hallowed realm of film, of the Tri-X, the D-76, the HC110-B, of 68 degrees plus or mins 1/2 degree.." Yet there is something happening here, what it is ain't exactly clear. Am I unfaithful, deluded, or should I ride with the tide and go with the flow. I like what I see, and I am impressed by a small unobtrusive, silent friend, with a 1.8 lens with wonderful ISO 1600 files.
