A Week of Black and White

Last week my brother and I decided to challenge ourselves and shoot only black and white for an entire week. It was a very interesting challenge for me. Going into it I knew it would be difficult, but I didn't anticipate how much I would fall in love with it. About halfway through the week things just "clicked" and I really started to love it. 

All photography is an abstraction of reality, but monochrome gives images an added layer of abstraction that allows express feelings in a way that the more literal color photography does not. I still really love color, but I have fallen in love with what black and white allows me to do. 

After this week I have decided to mostly dedicate my X100f to black and white. It is my little rangefinder "loaded with Tri-X" that I can grab and shoot at any moment. I think you will see a lot more black and white in my portfolio moving forward.
