Niko in Black and White – #D-04709
$3.50 – $99.95
Niko is a black wolf. Such wolves are relatively rare and are limited to just a few places on Earth. In the wild, most are found in the Northern Rockies, or Italy.
I have always liked black and white photography — something I used to shoot almost exclusively back in my film days. Now, I like to play on the computer, tweaking values and densities until the image looks just right. This is not a simple desaturation. This photo took 9 layers of tweaks and adjustments in Photoshop bringing it to a subtle sepia duotone reminiscent of selenium toning on Agfa fiber based paper.
Niko against the dark leafless willows looks spectacular in B&W.
