White Bark

Black And White Photography, Kirk, Photography

tree trunk-1

This image was made awhile ago and I just came across it. I was out shooting with an intern on assignment for the group of newspapers I worked for at the time as a Photo Editor.  I was teaching this intern about light and how B&W can be such a powerful tool. This tree had white bark that could not be ignored. I had the Leica M-P 240 and the 50mm Summilux with me and worked on this composition knowing that I would convert to B&W since the only real color was the sky. The texture on the tree just popped once it was converted.

  1. Excellent image Kirk 🙂 This is one of the largest White Birch trees I have ever seen. The textures and contrast are amazing in this image, great work.
