Formatt Hitech Filters, Instagram post date: 03-20-2017

, Instagram post date:

Photo Caption: I just received some @formatthitech filters from @bhphoto and can’t wait to test them out in the field!
.
I have been using Singh Ray filters for a long time and needed to add to my collection. Seeing @colbybrownphotography use and recommend these for a while (I am still sticking with the iPhone though Colby ?) and reading reviews and talking to some other friends I decided to give these a try. .
So far build quality looks very impressive. Filter holder seems a little complicated and slow at first but if it prevents light leaks during long exposures as it claims I will be psyched!
.
The polarizer filter that comes with the holder is amazingly thin!!
.
I decided to start with the Firecrest 0.9 (3-stop) split neutral grad and the Firecrest 4.8 (16 stop!!) solid neutral density filters. If I like the system and colors remain neutral I can definitely see adding a few more real soon. .

Sonoran Spring, Instagram post date: 03-20-2017

, Instagram post date:

Photo Caption: Hello there Spring!! Although lately it feels more like summer here in Phoenix/Scottsdale with temps in the 90’s the past week ?☀️.
.
I photographed these wildflowers and cholla cactus a few years ago here in the Phoenix Valley with some great backlighting. .
I have been so busy at my exhibition here at @celebrationoffineart that I have not had a chance to go out and photograph the wildflowers this year, which I hear are pretty spectacular.
.
Anyone know of any areas that still have great wildflowers in the North Scottsdale / North Phoenix / Carefree area? I am hoping to get out for a sunrise or sunset shoot this week ?.

Still Standing Tall – Zion National Park, Instagram post date: 03-18-2017

Zion National Park, Instagram post date:

Photo taken at: Zion National Park

Photo Caption: “Still Standing Tall” – Zion National Park, Utah – I photographed this a number of years ago in @zionnps while taking a wonderful hike by myself on the west end of the park.
.
I purposely framed this tree in-between the darker desert varnish of the canyon wall to help make the tree stand out more. .
This tree has certainly seen better days. I wonder if it is still alive today.

Snow Dune – Cape Cod, Massachusetts, Instagram post date: 03-16-2017

Cape Cod, Massachusetts, Instagram post date:

Photo taken at: Cape Cod, Massachusetts

Photo Caption: It is currently 90 degrees here in Scottsdale, Arizona with temps forecasted to get even warmer this weekend. I am finding myself trying to think of ways to stay cool and I came across this photo of mine from 2005 of a snowdrift on Cape Cod in West Falmouth, Massachusetts. .
This has always personally been one of my favorite black and white photos. I love the tonal range and the feeling I achieved with this photo. .
The color version was ok. Nice blue sky, white snow, and with the faintest of color in the dead grass. But often when you have an ok (or even bad) color photo you can create an amazing black and white photo. .
It all depends on the light and shadows and the overall tonal range in the image. .
Some of my best black and white photos have come from failed color ones, and this is one in particular.
.
Have you noticed the same in your black and white photographs?
