I like the theme and the lighting, but the conversion to B&W has left your images a bit flat in my opinion. I love doing B&W work -- do you use PS or something else for the conversion? (I noticed the mode is RGB color in the photos).

I think you could improve the images significantly with some adjustments on the computer. If you'd like to see an example of what I mean, I'd be happy to adjust one with your permission.

Please feel free to adjust and post.

I've been experimenting with ACDSee Pro version 2, which has a new channel mixer in the batch processing. I've tweaked a couple myself in PS since posting these, and do have a few that are better, but I'm still fighting with the right black and white conversion. Any tips are appreciated!

Cheers

I like the series, and agree about them seeming flat.
I do have comments about the gun.
pic one, can't tell its a gun.
last pic if the gun was lower, below her breasts, I think it would have more impact.

Great job though!! Good imagination!!

I use PS and B/W Styler. Here's what I come up with..



I included the levels to show that the detail remains (some monitors may make it look as though I've blown them out).

The adjustments were:

1) Dial down the brightness globally
2) Increase the shadow and highlight contrast (independently)
3) Adjust black and white points to taste

Sorry I don't have that fancy tearsheet look that RFS uses! /envy

Thanks again Chuck! I see what you mean. I'll do some more playing with the settings later and perhaps re-post the series.

Cheers!

i think the story you're telling would be better told on almost any set other than a seamless.

Agreed. The images posted were an attempt at the series. We're actually planning a couple of location shoots this month with a Halloween theme, and this was one of the storyboards that the girls wanted to try. All suggestions here have been great, and in terms of the series, we have some adjustments we will be making, as well as a couple of cool locations to try it out at.

Thanks for the your input!

Cheers
