As I work on and process individual images from my growing collection of black and white botanicals, I tend to process and tone each individual image as a ‘stand alone’ photograph. My ultimate aim however, once I have a nice collection, is to put my favorites together as a unified project. As a scan over the finished images, I can immediately see some difficulty. The toning, while optimized to my eye for any individual image, is a bit different for all. Some tend towards the paler and less saturated sepia tone and others are more saturated.
Ultimately they need to all hang together as a unified project with some consistency to ‘the look’. This is yet another issue to take into account when dealing with a project, as opposed to a single wall hanging.
