I recently visited a photography gallery in Carmel, California. What I saw there in the way of fine art black and white photography reawakened a desire to do more black and white conversions with no reference to what camera or lens was used.
Why? Because the entire time I was viewing those marvelous photographs in that gallery not once did I wonder what camera or lens was being used. I just marveled at the art of black and white and how appealing it is to the eye and the soul.
So, I have set up a section on Boxed Light with only Black & White photos I have taken. There will be no camera or lens information. Just the photographs and nothing more. I am light years behind the photographers whose work I saw in Carmel but the exercise alone will make me a better photographer.
I’ve always loved Black & White photography but got away from it because I did so much of it in my early years as a photographer, not because I wanted to but because I had to. Color was too expensive and a bit tricky to master.
So, for now I only have a few images in the Black & White section of Boxed Light but I hope to add more in the near future. I hope you enjoy them. Look for the menu option on the home page of Boxed Light or http://www.boxedlight.com/bw
