The Black & Whites

So as promised, I got some new software for Photoshop which makes creating some black & whites as easy as 1 2 3 :)

With a little bit of Photoshop magic (mostly deleting out the rich peoples houses in the background….) and Silver Efex Pro 2 means I can create some much more poignant and striking images, particularly of the re-enactments.

Although the re-enactment is a bit of fun, the serious side is that it is all about giving people at least an idea (and to remember) of what some of the generations before us had to endure.

I’ve played around with the various preset filters and  settings when working through the photos, so they’re all a little bit different, but create some interesting effects.
