  1. My wife and I have a couple of old classic Land Rovers, mine is being rebuilt at the moment but my wifes is used daily and to be honest has been as reliable as any modern car and of course comes into its own during winter in the snow which we get most winters up here. 🙂

    Do you only take B&W photos? They look amazing and I might do a few myself of my trucks, the B&W images have more ‘feeling’ than colour if you understand what I mean.

    • I’ve seen your blog, you have some lovely vehicles!
      I occasionally take colour photographs, but for this collection, and the main body of my work, I prefer black and white.
      Thankyou! Just remember that it’s not enough to just convert it to greyscale, otherwise the pictures will be flat and lifeless, you need to do some curves and contrast adjustments to make the blacks black and the whites white, and to get everything in between right too!

  2. Ah, so do you take the photos with in colour with a digital camera then convert to B&W? I’m not a photographer but I’m sure my Father (who was) used to take alot of B&W pictures as the quality was higher with B&W film (This was back in the 60’s and 70’s) but I guess the rules are different with digital.

    I will have a play. 🙂

    • Yes, I use digital almost solely now, I have several film cameras around, and I enjoy using them, but to be honest the quality now is much better with digital cameras and the workflow is quicker and easier.
      Good luck with your endeavours, and keep up the good work with the Landies! 🙂
