PHOTOGRAPHY 101 – ARCHITECTURE AND MONOCHROME
The buildings in Fremantle, Western Australia, are so different to one another that just walking down a few streets will provide an aesthetic adventure from the 1890s to more modern constructions – I particularly love the building pictured above for its perfect 60’s vibe – minimalist but striking! The shadows the letters cast on the white building give a cool dimension, making it a good candidate for transition to black and white.
I post a lot of cityscape images, so if you’re into a good bit of architectural viewing, clickedy click here to see some other funky places. 😀
I find that when choosing photos to try in black and white, I look at the shadows more than anything else. If you have a really interesting lighting situation going on, it will often transition well to black and white as the monochrome emphasises that difference in light and shade – at least that’s what I’ve found!
