For more of the year than not, I favour shooting in black and white, usually with a fairly high contrast set up that gives me bright whites and deep inky blacks.
Then at some point during spring, I typically shift back to colour photography, unable to resist the delicious colours of nature’s rebirth any longer.
But even when I’m shooting colour, I’ve realised I often shoot with a very limited palette.
Much of the time, in effect I’m shooting monochrome, but with a single base colour of green, or blue, or yellow, instead of white.
One tends to think of colour photography as being all the colours of the rainbow, or at least a handful of colours in any one shot.
But often by restricting the range of colours to very few – or just one – we can, I feel, create very powerful and beautiful images.
How about you? How often do you shoot colour monochromes?
