Kouyou Black & White

Normally, perhaps these days at least, the vibrant autumn landscapes are captured in color. For this scene I was drawn to try black and white, in this case with a red filter applied. I learned some about black and white printing in a photo lab with enlargers and color filters back in my school days. These days I work mostly in digital but still like to use filters, and the red filter actually filters out the "red" wavelengths of light - so the brilliant red and orange hues of the autumn trees fall to white. The effect is almost infrared photography like.


  1. Thanks K and S!!! Hope you had a nice Thanksgiving weekend :)

  2. I like your idea and the infrared type of B&W looks great. I have customized infrared digital camera (B&W only) and am having fun playing with it. Awesome!!!
