Sydney Street Photography: black & white session
I had a bit of spare time today, so I took to the Sydney streets for a session shooting in black and white. Going out with the intention of creating black and white images takes a little thought, because you’re looking for different things in a scene than when you’re shooting in colour. Huge contrast can be the enemy when shooting in colour, and indeed we spend thousands of dollars on filters to even out our scenes.. but when shooting in black and white contrast becomes your best friend.
So armed with my 5D Mark III and 50mm fixed lens I spent a couple of hours wandering the streets… here are some of the results. I hope you like them as much as I do!
