Stairway & Bricks

All my photos are formatted to look as if they are a print. So they are best viewed in dark mode.
Like it! How are you finding the colour photography?

@lmsa It is taking me out of my comfort zone and I am drawn to more objects with color, but it does not see normal to me. I'm still shooting b&w and might go back to it after March. I'm not going to give up color and will keep shooting a photo a day during March. After March I might go back to b&w, but being an Ace member I'll make a color album to post my color stuff there. Really, my heart is in b&w, but it's good to experiment.

I think you are doing very well! Would be nice to still see some colour from you after March :).

Great composition and tones.

I like this.The subject reminded me about watching a knitting video this week and the "star" indicated that she liked to take photos of people modeling the knitwear she made against a brick wall. Maybe you can revisit these sites with a model and do them all over again. Just an idea in case you run out of good subjects.

@lmsa I'll still shoot color, but I'll make a new album for that. I was not happy with some of the b&w I had done tone wise. They looked good online, but I'll want to print them someday and I'm not sure if they would hold up. I think it was because I was using a 16 year old 6mp camera. I have a newer camera now and the new files seem to convert to b&w better than my old camera. I seem to get b&w images more like I am use to making in a darkroom.

@randystreat It's funny you should say that. I have photographer friends that want to know where I took my photos because they want to take a model there for a shoot. If you look at my work there are zero people in my photos. I'm more interested in taking photos of where people work or play than have the people in the photo. I'm more into turning normal items into an abstract, or a study of shape, line, light and shadow. My b&w takes the photo in a more abstract direction than my color work since it takes out that one extra dimension.

@mikelskoog My husband has a neice who lives north of Atlanta and she did some senior photos for her daughter and friends at Little Five Points. They had a lot of brick, graffiti walls, etc. I don't know if that's close to your friends but it might be something to check out.

@randystreat Yup, Little Five Points is popular, same with some spots in Decatur. I think what interested my friends was they had not see the spots I have shot and wanted to do something different. Since I scout behind strip malls a bunch they are wanting to know where I got some of my brick photos. Mostly in Stone Mountain and in Tucker.
