Today I have declared my black and white portfolio day, so I am posting alternative edits of some of my images.
On my blog I have posted my entire black and white architectural and interior photography portfolio, all 40 images.
The first black and white re-edit is the picture of a classroom in Hamworthy Park Junior School in Poole, Dorset. This extension to the school was photographed for the architect, Kendall Kingscott, working for the client, the Borough of Poole. The extension was constructed by Midas Construction.
Here are links to the respective companies

When I say re-edit, I have produced new versions of some of these images, basically because I wanted to. I wanted to try new things, and produce different end results. I going to pot a couple of new black and white images today, and a few more during the week.
I am not quite sick of the site of these images just yet – I want to do a bit of editing just for myself, to produce some new and hopefully different work.
For this picture of the new extension to the school, I wanted to produce a bright, almost dreamlike, overexposed bright image. I actually cropped the portfolio image in a bit, which works quite well. In my re-edits I am going to look at cropping the finished images whilst playing around with other stuff.
This is what I did in Nik Silver Efex pro
Full Contrast and Structure
Lens Falloff 2
No science. I just liked what each adjustment did, and was happy with the end point.
Come back to my blog later on today for another black and white portfolio reedit.
