playing around with black and white photography.
I’ve been reading about what makes a good black and white photograph. I’m finding it difficult to get my head around. But I’m happy with this.
I like it geometric feel. The bird was kind enough to pose at exactly the right angle. I like the different shades on the pipes and I love the flair of white on the beak and tail of the bird.
I could have rotated the photo to make the cross pipe exactly horizontal, but I like the slight angle leading the eye up to the bird.
In colour the same shot.
This guy couldn’t resist posing for me. He’s a very different character. I just love him.
I like him in black and white too.
