Sunday Café - B&W Street
C.S.Sellers - 2017
I only have three rules for my photography:
1. It must be candid: no posing/nothing staged
2. I prefer B&W/monochrome
3. Avoid photoshop
You might wonder why... why candid... why monochrome... why no edits?
I like candid because it challenges me to be dynamic and capture the moment.
I have to be aware, I only have an instant.
I like B&W, I was inspired by the likes of Doisneau.
Before colour film or digital, we still had humans, we still lived lives, we still had stories.
I dislike photoshop for similar reasons.
I feel we rely on new tools too often, to fix things or make it clever.
Simplicity is an art; more often it takes greater skill to do less.
If we rely on an eraser, we're lazy with our words.
Train your craft--be decisive and judicious--be bold and dynamic.
