I have a secret to share…I have been experimenting lately with black and white photography.
Colour, of course, will always be my passion. But in my personal feeds, I can’t seem to escape the tone, mood and dramatic beauty of the black and white picture. I have become a huge fan.
Using her Ricoh camera as a means to express her artistic photography, Theresa Groth is a photographer who has definitely captured my attention in the area of bnw. I am so excited that I got a chance to connect with this amazing and up-and-coming street photographer! Can’t wait to share her with you!
There is a quiet war on the streets about what kind of camera you are using to capture your photos. For some photographers, it is a fancy DSLR camera, complete with a variety of lens and a snazzy camera bag. For others, it is the ubiquitous iPhone, or some other device that slides in and out of your pocket.
Who wins? I know in my previous article, 7 Reasons Why the iPhone 6 is My Camera of Choice, I was very clear on my preference of cameras. But, I thought of putting personal bias aside and discovering if there is more to this DSLR and smartphone issue than meets the eye? As a street photographer, I am always trying to improve my craft. I feel it is time for me to take a look at this camera war a bit more seriously and weigh out the pros and cons of each camera type.
There is nothing like a bit of sunshine to warm up the walls and bring our street artists back outside! In the last couple of weeks, I have been so happy to have been invited down to shoot some fantastic work in and around the city of Toronto.
I must start by saying that I am as surprised at writing this article, as you, my friends and family, are at reading it. Who would have thought that this secret and quiet passion of mine would amount to anything, let alone, THIS? Thousands of photos later, I am choosing the ones that changed my life, to share with you my journey that brought me here.
I remember clearly posting this picture. It was my first Instagram shot. I had been staring, so transfixed in the moment, blue ripples hypnotizing me. It was during this time that I needed creative release more than I ever did. We all have those moments, for sure, and with the uniqueness that makes us human, we all express them differently.
