My first love was black & white photography. I saw my Dad’s b&w images taken while serving in WWII and Korea. I was mesmerized by them, and intrigued by how the black & white choice made me feel. He built a darkroom for me when I was in high school and fostered my love for photography.
I love the quote, “with color we look at the image, with black and white we look into the image” I find this to be true. I love color now but black & white will always be another choice for me. I’m very excited about the upcoming workshop we’re doing with Chuck Kimmerle in Death Valley late February.
