Building from the previous black and white collection, here’s another one that was shot in SoCal. It seems that I cannot get enough of black and whites these days so I have been processing photos this way. I hope you don’t mind. This image was taken at the Manhattan beach pier, a photo which I have imagined for so long, one that I knew I needed to create when I visited the place. I was going to leave the color on this photograph, but it was distracting, and taking away from the main focus of the image: the texture and the lines.
I am starting something new this year. 2014 will be different. When I started with photography, I dove in head first, learning as much as I can as I go along. It wasn’t such a bad thing, I learned a lot. But I have so much more to learn. So, this year, I will be focusing more on learning, and honing whatever skill I have picked up all those years. I will become a student again :), if all goes well, I should be starting school in two weeks. I am taking a two-year, intensive Commercial Photography program at Dawson College. I suspect that my blog will also go through some changes. I will be using my blog to document my progress, and hopefully use it to share whatever I learn in school. At least that is the plan. I am hoping that you’ll stick around as I go through this exciting journey.
