I was playing with some of my old picture yesterday and I made this BW. IMO monochrome picture bring a nice twist to watches.

This one is my first real setup using layering. The challenge with these picture is light. Good black and white requires lots of lighting.

There is still some flare that I didn't corrected in PS. With my new light setup, that should be fix for my next photo shoot.

I've seen some great BW shots on this forum. Let see them!

I'd agree with you. BW just adds a bit more drama. I've even started taking some family shots in BW and they just look superb. Negative pictures too can add something else to a shot.

I agree with you Fergie on the negative. It gives an interesting look to your bond. Gold bezel and white face, I wonder how it would look for real.

Great pics guys.

I like what you've started here Mr Symtech.

I hadn't taken any B and W pictures before but this thread has encouraged me to have a go.....









I personally don't B and W does the AT justice at all because you loose the stunning blue from the dial.:001_unsure:

Great pics indeed guys.

Good job GJ, specially your last one. Future WIS n training :biggrin:


Rick, I think that the AT is still pretty good looking in BW. You loose the color but you gain other details and shape, like the beautifull arrow hands and the markers.

Have a good week all :thumbup1:

No I'm afraid not Mr Symtech

Still in the extended family though since it's in the loving care of Mr Tricky Dicky.

Now for a hint. Well, nothing is as it appears :lol::lol::lol:


Hope that helps my friend :001_smile:
