Last saturday's visit to Q1 and surfers' didn't do my Yashica justice because it almost literally didn't see the light of day. Taking black and white photos really proved to be quite a challenge especially to a greenhorn like me, because I suppose it takes some experience to be able to picture scenes in black and white and visualise the texture, tonal composition and all.
Since I didn't manage to seize enough moments to snap enough BW photos, I did a bit of meddling with some of the photos I took with my digicam, essentially digitally converting some of them to black and white just to see how they would turn out and to gear up for the next photography trip (yea!) Me thinks some of them actually look quite decent :) Also did a little of highlighting and minor editing just to get a more contrasting tone. I think if I use filters I can achieve the same kind of effect too. So exciting! Want to go and buy some filters *boink boink*
And my favourite of the lot :)
To end off this post, some photos of monday's yummy dinner. courtesy of wayne of course.
Don't look at me. I didn't do it, Wayne did.
Ok la, I did the hair.
Yummy, juicy meatballs :)
The end result, is a very happy belly. Mine, at least :)
Next time when I'm rich, I'm going to bribe Wayne into working as my home chef so that I can eat good food 24/7. muahaha.
