Highly recommended photography

When I was in Brussels in January 2006, I met Adam Pulchart, a fellow resident at the B&B where I stayed. We interacted briefly a few times, but long enough for me to realize that he was a very nice guy -- helpful, witty and with a very open mind. This year, when I went to Brussels, again in January, we interacted a little bit more over beer, wine and food. He told me that he was really interested in photography and that he had started a blog of his own to share his pictures. A few weeks back, Adam invested in a Nikon digital camera, and has started posting very regularly since then. One of his recent posts has the best story I have ever seen told through a series of photos. He takes excellent B&W shots, and presents them with very catchy titles. Highly recommended stuff.

Wow, it's a really charming sequence. Black and white is such a difficult medium but the results are stupendous if you get it right. For people photography, I say, this is the only medium.

Not to be confused with rudeness. The loveliness of the pictures are arresting. And all I can do is stare. In a good way, of course. :)

gina: You are right -- for shooting pics of people in uncontrolled environments, B&W is the best medium. However, if access to controlled lighting is available, colour photography can be very exciting too.

punkster: All right, you can stare. Have your way. Do your thing. :)

That series is just awesome!

I don't agree with you though Anurag, B&W is just wonderful when lighting can be controlled, Most studio portraits especially ones that have character, tend to be B&W. Color is more often used for snap-shottish outdoor uncontrolled people photography.. like that last birthday party or wedding you attended.

Glad to have read your encouraging comments folks. Good luck to you all!

And thanks again to you Anurag, for providing this opportunity to interact, albeit indirectly, with your virtual friends from several continents...

As for the B&W versus colour discussion, I have no hard views one way or the other. I guess both can be put to good use provided we know what we're doing.

Right now however, I'm still enjoying my B&W phase. What happens next, only time can tell...
