MONO-LOGUES--Bereft of colors, black and white photos amaze me as a photography hobbyist. Concepts of highlight and shadow detail, image contrast, exposure latitude and tonal range are all best understood through the black-and-white images.
Developing an affinity for black and white photographs allows me to visualize subjects in their base existence, using solely the tonal range available. This photographic medium lends well to abstract imagery, landscape photos and especially portraiture. Moreover, it distances the viewer from the subject, allowing him or her to transcend and appreciate the latent image produced.
Thus this blog is my take of the colorless world–not only about images, but also about some conversations and stories behind them.
I believe that black and white photography is powerful.
