Photography lesson 2: try a black & white/monochrome conversion

When conditions may not be perfect for shooting say a landscape shot – high noon or overcast/dull weather for instance, try converting your shot in to black & white or monochrome – often you’ll be surprised at the result! The shot below I was about to pass by until I converted it to black & white using Adobe’s Lightroom software and it brought out the moody atmosphere of the afternoon as the clouds were rolling in to Melbourne.
