Bumi, A Portrait #7

I've put this photo up for the sole purpose of explaining how I do some of my black and white conversions. You'll see that there's really nothing to it other than knowing first off what you want to archive in the first place.

I've done a video tutorial which I have posted on my other blog. I will start posting tutorials online there from now on so I strongly suggest you subscribe to it to be kept up to date on what I've been up to.

Oh! that the tutorials are completely FREE

I love your style. Your use of grain is quite good. And I espcially like this one.
