Discussion about black and white photography

Those of you who have met me personally know how much I love black & white photography! Some questions I have been asked are “Do you use film to shoot your black and white photos?” I do still have and sometimes use my first camera which is a Nikon N75 to shoot with film, but I now have gone to digital shooting RAW files. My black and whites on my website were shot in full color and then converted to black and whites and the detail is not only dramatic but amazing! One of my favorite photographers is Vivian Maier. She loved street photography capturing people and sites around the city she loved. She had a vast collection that was not discovered until after her death. I would have loved to meet her and ask her lots of questions about her techniques. The following is one of her quotes:

“We are not picture takers. We are experience makers.”

I have tried to emulate that thought in my photography experience. I try to sell a story. People enjoy following people who inspire them. I hope my work inspires you!
