The black-and-white project…

I have to admit, I love black and white photography.   Either film or digital coversions, there is just something about the rich tonality and simplicity of a well-executed black and white photo that speaks to me.  Not that I’m a “purist” or anything, I just like the aesthetic 🙂

However, for some reason I’ve done almost *no* black and white work recently… Why? I have no idea… but almost everything out of my camera for the past 6 months or so has been color (not that there’s anything wrong with that!)   So… to “break out of my rut” as it were, I’ve decided to do a month of exclusively black and white shooting.  Starting sept 1, I’m setting my default import preferences in Lightroom to apply a b/w conversion on import.  I’m not going to change my normal shooting habits, keep on working as I always do only it will all be b/w.    It’s always good to shake things up a bit to get the creative juices flowing 🙂  Pictures from the project will be posted here in the coming weeks…
