Hey people.

I'm looking for a site that I think somebody had shared here. I thought I had it saved it in my bookmarks but I guess I either lost it or had never saved it.

I think it was a .co.uk address, it dealt with black and white conversion and some of the described workflow was very well articulated. The photographs were pretty damn good too. Mostly landscapes, although there was one image used to describe the entire process that was of a tree stump.

That's all that I can remember right now, really.. anybody have any idea of what I'm talking about?

It's been a while since we've heard from you Akshay. How are things? To answer your question, I remember Gaz did some b&w conversion experiments and displayed the results here... somewhere. Otherwise, you could check his websites to see if he's got his magic formula somewhere.

Unfortunately, I have no idea how long ago it was, Rob. I'm thinking maybe last year?

All I can remember is what I've posted so far. I've tried searching here but can't seem to find that one website. Too many results!
Was hoping somebody remembered which site I was talking about.
There were a few shots that were quite striking; one was of a tree stump (vertically framed), another was a landscape shot of a field with a few sheep in it. It had tutorials for black and white conversion and enhancement.

@winjeel, re: How are things? I'm good, thanks :).

Work has been keeping me busy. Weddings, commercial products, interiors and even a couple of pets. Nice mixed bag :). The monsoons are a slow season in Mumbai.
Trying to push towards fashion and glamour. Tough market to break into, though. People are a little afraid to experiment with relative newcomers to the field.

Don't get too much time to browse fora, unfortunately. Or as much time as I used to, anyway.
