Black and White Photographs

I have very few black and white photos that will fit into my Snapshot scanner. I will use these two photographs to illustrate a point concerning the "wetness" of water.

I hope you like what you see and write to me at the address below.

Photos by Fred Sgrosso

The upper photograph illustrates the effect of a short shutter speed on the waterfall, and the lower photo was shot using a slow (>1sec) exposure. Neither photo is "right" or "wrong"; it is what you like, and how you want the scene portrayed. Both photos were shot using a 28-80 mm lens and probably TRI-X film. I used a polarizer, red filter, orange filter, yellow filter, and a gelatin neutral density filter to attenuate the light on the slow speed shot. Needless to say, a tripod was used for both pictures.
