  1. When you get back to reality, I’d like to hear about conversion to b/w or shot in b/w. Those first two images of polar bears blow me away!!

      Well, film is essentially defunct so everything is shot in digital, and in RAW, and in colour. If your primary aim was b&w, you could use a b&w view in the camera but you would still end up with a colour RAW file.

      In the old days, people shot b&w film and used colour filters over the lens to get different ranges of tonalities. People shooting a Leica Monchrom would still do it that way but the usual way these days is to shoot RAW colour and convert to b&w. Then you can apply your filters in the post-processing.

      I base myself in Lightroom and mainly use Nik Silver Efex Pro 2 for monochrome conversions.
