Recent Black and White Photographs

Taking and studying good black and white photographs is very constructive both to learn about composition and to better understand value relationships in a colorful world. For example red is so bright and eye catching but reads in a black and white as a mid range gray. Black and white photography is also a profound study in contrast between light sources and cast shadows. With the excitement of color drained from a scene, the relationship of shapes is more evident. I will continue to take black and white photographs as I not only like them in their own right, but I feel they make me both a better photographer and artist.

Here are the black and white photographs I have taken recently… I hope you enjoy them!

I work to amplify good wherever I find it. I love color, texture, beauty, great ideas, nature, metaphor, deliciousness, genuine spirituality, and exploring new territory. I encourage authenticity, nurture creativity, champion sustainability, promote peace, and hope to foster a new renaissance where we all are free to be our most fulfilled, multifaceted, and terrific selves.
