    Howdy all, thought I would share my latest set. Had a chance to head to Thailand that I couldn't resist, the condition was that I could only take my Sony RX-100 and some filters. Decided to embrace the limitations and see what I could achieve :)

    Comments most welcome :)

    That food shot kinda loses its impact in B&W I reckon.

    Been focusing on b&w photography lately after studying some new techniques and the RX100 was the perfect chance to work on it more :) I did take some colour shots but mostly b&w.

    The food shot was the only one that sort of worked in colour, however the lighting was so poor that it isn't very interesting.

    Some nice shots there, what filters did you take away with you?

    I know its personal preference but i would up the shadows a touch in a lot of the images

    If you like B&W i would suggest you get hold of the Nik software suite from google.

    I shoot in color and then convert to B&W in post

    Just a 77mm Hoya HD CPL and Cokin graduated filter set held over the lens

    yeah im still playing with shadows etc trying to find that sweet spot I am finding too much shadow detail is hurting the overall contrast of the images though and making them a bit flat to look at?

    I personally prefer to do b&w in post also however it was a bit difficult with the RX100 as I can't preview in b&w and shoot in RAW. It just occurred to me that it may be possible shooting in RAW + JPG though... The camera certainly amazed me though and I would not have got half these shots if I took my DSLR with me.

    I'm a fan of that high-contrast black and white processing, so these look good to me. 1 and 3 especially. Nice work.

    Love the shots but bit too contrasty for my taste. Otherwise great work.
