On Seeing Nature in Black and White

On Seeing Nature in Black and White

My obsession with photography started with my love of black and white film.  Since I was very little I used to imagine scenes in shades of gray and when I started painting I would often sketch my paper or my canvas using charcoal and then feel reluctant to paint them with my colors. I pretty much live for color nowadays and I love to bring my images to life in that way, but it's true what they say about never forgetting your first love. I've been exploring and studying tones and contrasts for years but lately I'm feeling so energized and inspired by the patterns and textures that I'm finding in nature.
