Monochrome Photography by RyanPhotography


 

A great photograph is one that fully expresses what one feels, in the deepest sense, about what is being photographed. ~ Ansel Adams

“Monochrome photography is photography where the image produced has a single hue, rather than recording the colours of the object that was photographed. It includes all forms of black-and-white photography, which produce images containing tones of grey ranging from black to white. Other hues besides grey, such as sepia, cyan or brown can also be used in monochrome photography. Monochrome photography is mostly used for artistic reasons in the contemporary world.”  ~ As described by Wikipedia is a form of photography that I love.  Some images unfortunately don’t always make good black and white images but for me that has been a rarity.  I just love playing around with Gradient Maps in Photoshop as well as using Lightroom Presets as a starting point for my photo editing process.

Below are a selection of images which have been processed in monochrome….
