BLACK AND WHITE

SECATEURS & RUBBER GLOVES – Close to home series


5 Comments

I’m having trouble seeing in Black & White these days, especially since I rarely go into Melbourne for some street photography, so I’m practising with things I see around my apartment when the weather isn’t suitable for a walk outdoors.  The secateurs and rubber gloves I’d left on the end of my desk (ready to take outdoors and return to my gardening tool box) caught my eye.

This is a rare time I’ve actually shot in Monotone and haven’t had to edit the image at all.  It seemed to have just the right amount of contrast and DOF.

Shooting ordinary everyday objects indoors is actually not as easy as it looks I must say.

Feel free to offer some constructive criticism in the comment box below.

Since I rarely go into the city since moving to the western suburbs of Melbourne 4 months ago, this blog will change in subject matter/style.

Not sure where its going, but hopefully I’ll wake up one morning and find some inspiration.

Simple subjects will probably take over from (mostly) street photography.
