Grand Floridian in Black and White
Today’s photo come from the Grand Floridian and helps to provide a little bit of insight into seeing photos in black and white before even putting the camera to your face.
Before I even snapped this photo, I knew that it was going to be a black and white conversion. It was for three reasons. The first was that the inside of this lobby during the middle of the day doesn’t really have any warmth to it, so a shot in color really wouldn’t pop all that much. Secondly, there are tons of lines and textures in this lobby. Those lines and textures look cool in color, but they really jump off the screen when you see them in black and white. And thirdly, it’s the Grand Floridian, which kind of has an old school vibe to it. That helps the conversion make sense too, in my opinion. I thought of even going with a slight sepia tone, but I decided to keep it to regular old B&W.
