The Black and White Project | My Life in Monochrome

2016 finished

As so often happens with a personal project, you get distracted, you get busy and the next thing you know you've gone months without updating your website. Here's 2016 finished out with a selection of images from each month.    

Henry showed up at our front door in a raging storm

  Up to now, this blog has contained images shot with my Fuji but this post contains a few from mt Canon 5D MK3. Since moving into our new house, I've re-built a studio space and so I'm more prone to shoot with my pro gear when I'm in the house than before.

Texas | Spring Break | 2016

Back in the film days, you could get film that was 12/24/36 exposures. Here's our trip to Texas on one roll of film. I'll admit, it's hard to not crop and photoshop these images but that's not the point of this blog... ┬álol   black and white vacation texas 0316 002 texas 0316 003 texas 0316 004 texas 0316 005 texas 0316 006 texas 0316 007 texas 0316 008 texas 0316 009 texas 0316 010 texas 0316 011 texas 0316 012 texas 0316 013 texas 0316 014 texas 0316 015 texas 0316 016 texas 0316 017 texas 0316 018 texas 0316 019 texas 0316 020 texas 0316 021 texas 0316 022 texas 0316 023 texas 0316 024 texas 0316 025 texas 0316 026 texas 0316 027 texas 0316 028 texas 0316 029 texas 0316 030 texas 0316 031 texas 0316 032

The Table

We've been moving and working and I just haven't had time to pick up my camera and shoot for me. But I do like the light in the new place.. table

New York with Family 2015

We were in New York for 4 days and while we were there, I tried to take time every day to think and shoot in black and white. Even though I was shooting in color, I shot with black and white as my final destination and as usual, I used my small Fuji x100s. Below are a few images from the trip. They range from interesting shots that I like to simple family pics. The more I shoot for the project the more I enjoy it. I find that I linger over the images more when there are only a few and I pay attention to detail more when there is no color to distract me. No Photoshop, no digital pen, no dodge and burn, no actions or filters. Just simple black and white images like my parents used to shoot. Enjoy!   New York Black and White New York BW_002 New York BW_003 New York BW_007 New York BW_006 New York BW_012 New York BW_008 New York BW_018 New York BW_004 New York BW_016 New York BW_017 New York BW_013 New York BW_021 New York BW_022 New York BW_005 New York BW_011 New York BW_015 New York BW_019 New York BW_010 New York BW_025 New York BW_024 New York BW_009 New York BW_020 New York BW_014 New York BW_023 New York BW_026

Sanibel Island Vacation

We headed south to Sanibel Island for a few days of relaxation. I didn't spend too much time with my camera as I was trying to not be a photographer for a few days. Still, I couldn't help doing a few black and whites while I was there.
