The Canyons of FiDi
Still on a b+w kick, I journeyed into the canyons of the financial district last night. I learned a new trick and wanted to try it out. I was listening to a Derrick Story podcast in which he suggested an interesting way to approach b+w photography. Turns out, those of us with “modern cameras” – read mirrorless – can see things in b+w as we’re taking the picture. It’s simple – set the jpeg mode to black and white. Then, looking in the viewfinder you will see, that’s right, black and white. Story’s argument is that it gives you a new way of seeing. And he’s correct. I use raw + black and white so the raw file is still in color; just the jpeg is black and white. Cool.
That said, there were a couple of pictures that I liked better in color. So, the gallery has both types. Enjoy.
