      Thanks for your appreciation. In some ways I feel a bit of a fraud, I encourage black & white but most of my personal work is split toned or Lith and not straight forward B&W.

    Thank you for stopping by my little 365 photog and commenting on my self portrait. I have thought about doing more black and white profiles since then. I love your photographs, it has the feel of the great photographers of the past.

    Much appreciated.

    Andy, thanks for sharing your photos. You are an artist and an inspiration to me. In fact, since finding your blog people have told me that my photos look different these days. Really like your monochromes and Lith. Looking forward to seeing more…

    Thanks for looking at my blog. If you like the picture I posted in “Divine images”, you should look at the photographer’s website (www.judahpassow.com). So many great images. You have some amazing photos too. I’m a huge fan of monochrome. Very atmospheric.

    Hello Andy, just been reading your article in DIGIT (Issue 3 2014). An interesting read it is too. I think a lot of photographers new to RAW files would be pleased and relieved to read your description of some of your files being dull and flat (just like everyone else’s) and how unprocessed RAW files are “fairly unimpressive beasts”.

    I remember years ago when I first started shooting in RAW the feeling of failure and disappointment when looking through a days captures. If I had known then what I know now I probably wouldn’t have felt as bad about some of my efforts.
