Exploration Through the Lens: Berlin in Black and White
The walls of the lavatory at Au Comptoir, a French bistro in Vancouver, don multiple black and white photographs of Paris. It was the inspiration I needed to return to my faithful film camera on my trip to Berlin this past September. Shooting in black and white uses different creative pockets in my brain than colour shots. Instead of thinking of the colour coordination, or lack thereof, of a scene, or someone’s attire, I am free to concentrate on the texture and lighting of my image. And so, I share with you, dear reader, some of the shots of which I am most proud from that glorious one week trip.
