Surfing Monochrome Selection

Oahu, Hawaii, 19 to 22 February 2015

Selected monochrome conversions from a surfing photography workshop with Michael Clark and Brian Bielmann.

Black and White, Hawaii, Monochrome, Oahu, Photography, Pipeline, seascape, Surfing, Travel

This is of course a very different effect to the colour versions.

.

Part of the reason I converted these is that there is something of a traditional ethos to monochrome surfing images.  In the 60s and 70s probably most of the images were black and white.

As always, you can click on any of the images for a larger view.

    I take your point about the 60’s and 70’s but I personally prefer the colour 🙂

  2. Superb Murray,
    I think this interpretation brings out far more of the drama & energy in the images.
    No9 & No13 are my particular favourites.

    I’m a black & white kind of guy…love these. Not that I like B&W better than color. Color, after all, is color and vivid. But these possess a certain ethereal quality that I love in B&W.

    I really enjoyed the series. I am going to agree with David A Lockwood’s comment regarding the drama and energy you conveyed with B&W. I also suspect you already know I do like B&W.
