Of course I’m not being serious!
Not totally at least.
My way to create “black & white” pictures is change it into a gray scale picture and than into a duotones one. Of course the colors are block plus the light version of another color in order to get a wash, often it’s sepia wash…
A few nights ago I’ve noticed that I use different toning, and thought that i could create a B&W banner preserving the crazy idea of a banner made up with 7 (once were 8 pictures) pictures put in the color sequence.
I underlined a lot the toning difference, so we might say they are not real black & white shots but I don’t think it’s such a terrible thing, do you?
