Black and White in June
Black and white in June
After some nice streets events, and day trips with Edze, I had quite some pictures to sort out. Some of them looked awesome in Black & White.
My thought was, let’s post one black and white photo each day in June!
Research and The subjects
I’d read some articles about street photography, just to find out what to take into account before trying anything.
I would advise, if you’re interested in street photography, you should do some reading on this subject.
You can find a lot of articles on the internet.
Keep in mind, it’s not what you do photograph but more how and when, with regard to privacy etc.
Actually, it’s just a matter of doing, scan your surrounding constantly and you’ll start to see more scenes worth photographing.
I took my time, during a yearly cycling event, and stayed in one place for some time, just to see what was happening around me.
Of course, there were situations with objects or persons which were easy to catch (like the cyclists)
I found other situations a little bit more difficult because I was close by and was hoping they didn’t notice me, staring at them through my lens. Exciting!!
During the day trips with Edze, most of the time I did not have the opportunity. A kid jumping around, yelling for his dad to see or do this and that is a challenge on its own. It was a lot of fun though.
After gathering a lot of images of all kind of subjects I was very pleased with the results.
I had given myself the opportunity to do this experiment and I loved it!
More Black and White photos will follow definitely. You can find a gallery of the photos taken, so far, over here.
Most of the photos were taken in the place where I’m living. A small village. So much to see!
Imagine what will happen in a big city like Rotterdam!
I’ll plan a visit soon! So keep an eye on this site to find out what will happen. (can’t wait to find out? Have a look over here because it already happened!!)
My portfolio has been updated already so if you can’t wait to see them, you’re welcome to have a look at my portfolio “Black & White”
