41 Photographs Of Rivers In Black And White To Sooth The Soul

Last Updated on by

Rivers are the life-blood of communities. The snake through our cities and towns, we use them to travel on, relax on, and even trade on. Whether they be peaceful, babbling or a torrent racing to the sea, rivers sooth the soul, so what better way to capture them, than in black and white.
The trouble is, in the age of the DSLR we need to convert to black and white. Of course, great black and whites start in camera, but the biggest challenges in black and white photography lie in knowing which images will work well in black and white and in understanding the important role post-processing plays in controlling tone and contrast when converting a photo to black and white.
If the idea of taking amazing black and white photographs of beautiful rivers grabs at something in your soul, and you want to learn how to emulate the masters, please take a look at Kent DuFault's Better Black And White Guide.
But for now, let's see what you can do with black and white conversions! We hope these 41 photographs of rivers in black and white will inspire you.
