ascension, 4/26 in 2017 inspired by #UseThisPhotoBook

Assignment #4 of my year-long photo challenge inspired by Henry Carroll’s Use This If You Want To Take Great Photographs is from page 43: take a picture that only works in black and white.

While I love shooting noir and totally would have gone there with this assignment, a little birdie recently suggested I shoot more street photography. Sure, her encouragement suggested that I venture out of the suburbs and into the city for this endeavor, but my schedule and my thoughts whispered “baby steps…” This *could* have been seen in the city, right Fatima? So, for this assignment, both a genre that is largely digested in black and white and a subject that couldn’t be photographed in any other light–the absence and sum of all colors.

Up March 15: “Freeze the frame exactly 57 minutes and 32 seconds into your favorite film. Take a picture inspired by what you see,” from page 117 of Use This If You Want to Take Great Photographs. I’m pretty excited about this one! I haven’t even checked it out at the precise frame, but my favorite movie pick is Amélie. If you haven’t seen it, you’re missing out!!
