Everyone who knows me knows I love black and white photography. I’ll also admit to the tropes that a lot of the greats like Ansel Adams have inspired my photography and style.
I know, soooooo cliche.
But it is true.
On my camera, the C2 custom function button is set to a monochrome live view so I can shoot a color image but see it in black and white as I have found that tends to lead to better overall photographs from my camera. I may or may not process those in color but I still see the image I’m creating in black and white initially when I’m in C2 mode.
This past weekend, I shot a few images I thought would make great black and whites. I’ll let you be the judge for yourself but I’m pretty happy with these.
I'm a trans photographer and filmmaker based in New Mexico. I love adventure and travel and exploring my state. I chase down incredible storms and skies. I advocate for good mental health and for my trans siblings.
