Toning Of Photographs

Posted by akessonphotography on 1, September 14, 2006

I’ve always liked black&white and toning (sepia, bluetone, combination of both…) of photos.  Seems that you can gaze deeper into a picture when it is not in colour.  Not that don’t like colour – there’s many on this blog.  Love saturated colours.  Bright, rich. But toning – what is pleasing is always in the eye of the viewer.  Two photos below I have been working on recently.  Different presentations.  Second one bit like what we used to get in the darkroom.  The first allows a hint of colour in foliage.  Have a look. Make a comment – I’m interested in the type of toning other people like.

    I like both, but prefer the dark chocolate one on the bottom. Like the one where the red jumper is showing through in photograph before these.
