will your photography suggest or state?
One very important difference between color and monochromatic photography is this: in black and white you suggest; in color you state. Much can be implied by suggestion, but statement demands certainty… absolute certainty.
Fall has arrived and with it an abundance of beautiful landscape opportunities. There’s a certain comfort that comes with feeling at ease with your camera and confident that you will capture the image that you’re looking for.
I know what kind of images draw me in and I will be watching for those little moments amidst the explosion of colors in the foliage.
Mine won’t be the sweeping panoramas with tamarack ablaze with yellow.
Nor will they be a sea of red from the maples.
Lately I find myself in unfamiliar territory though, so rather than fight it I’m just letting it go where it may.
I’m talking about color. I know that winter will bring me back to my love of monochromatic but every journey has twists and turns and much like this river I’m just going to go with the flow.
