Post-processing a photo is very interesting, it does give you a lot of options. I take all my photos in colors on my camera and switch those to black and white on my computer. It’s really on the computer that I choose to keep my photo in color or go monochrome.
With this photo, my first intention was to make a full monochrome photo. Between the start and the final touch, I always “play” a little, trying different options, adding a little bit of this, removing a little bit of that, go back to square one, start again but this time with a different texture. The software offers so many options, you can be very creative. With one photo to start with you can have hundred of finished product. With this one as a test, I decided to see what would be the result if I added some blurred effect in the backgroung. Sometime the final result is not what I had in mind when I started working on it.
