In my previous post, I wrote about how black and white photography changes your outlook of what should be captured in a frame. The lack of colours during such a monochromatic exercise forces you to find shots that are somehow more meaningful rather than pretty.
Today, I went out to Clarke Quay with The Fiancée on a short photo trip to test out the idea.
Here’s the camera that I’m using:
It’s the Olympus Pen E-PL6, loaded with the BCL-1580 body lens cap. Today’s the first time I’m using such a lens. Turns out that this lens was designed for the E-PL6’s special art modes. So, with the black and white mode turn on, here are some meaningful shots that I took:
This photo is completely devoid of meaning. Meaninglessness can be very meaningful.
A lone tourist looks forward to find adventure at the end of the bridge.
Sheltered from the elements. A shelter shaped like an umbrella.
Signs of a delicious meal.
These cats are waiting to be let out of the bag.
This is my favourite:
To have and to hold, as we walk through the journey of life together.
Well, that’s all for now. I’ll try to do more black and white shots in the days to come.
