Rather than using a conventional camera for this year’s Project 52 with Jenny, I selected my iPhone and iPad to create work that is different, unique and more thought provoking. Pursuit of more creative images and a return to my soul comes through trial and error and is a perpendicular learning curve.
The image I selected to share with aGathering is more conventional than others in this years project but capturing the facades of a building is alluring and daunting. Creating an artful architectural image that pulls in the viewer also involves post processing that might veer from the norm. It is not for everyone.
I am keen on making photographs that are the opposite of HDR and have an extremely narrow tonal range. There are no mid tones so they are black and white photos in the literal sense. There may appear to be some shading but that is minute dots, white on black and black on white.
I explored and experimented with the application of different apps dealing with ‘threshold’ until I found one that suited extreme and black and white and pushed it to its limit.
