B&W Snowboarding Conversion

So I’ve seen some great B&W skiing and snowboarding imagery, so I decided to do a conversion of an image from last weekend.  It was an image that I originally wasn’t the biggest fan of because the snowboarder had just gone into a shadow, but when I converted it to B&W and lowered the contrast to bring out more shadow details, I found the image to be really appealing.

 I hope to have great images after this weekend.  I’m going to Snowmass to meet my family for a vacation for a weekend.  I plan to checking out the Maroon Bells as well as a detour through Southern Utah on the way home.  I’ll probably shoot a lot of film, so it may take a while to get the image ups, but lets just hope the weather cooperates.
