From geometric patterns on skyscrapers to the ironwork on historical buildings, there are many opportunities to capture the beauty and complexity of architecture. Today’s Tip: As we explored yesterday, color is a powerful element in photography. But let’s not forget black and white, or monochrome, which can be very dramatic! Black, white, gray, and shades in between interact in the frame in dynamic ways. When we talk about monochrome in photography, we’re referring to images developed or executed in black and white or in varying tones of only one color. Train your eye to look for architectural elements that translate in black and white: sharp lines and patterns, defined shapes, large surface areas, and a mix of very light and very dark colors.
About your author
I grew up on the 'Spice Island', the island of Grenada located in the West Indies in the Caribbean Sea. I love Grenada and hope one day to return there permanently. For now I live in the San Francisco bay area on my boat and am blessed with a wonderful job as a lead Aircraft Maintenance Technician with Southwest Airlines in Oakland, Ca. I have been in the Aviation business since I was 18 years old initiated in the field by The United States Navy which I joined at age 17. My other interests are my boat which I live on, my wonderfully loving dogs, music and creativity of all sorts.
