Black and White
For me, anyways, it always seems tricky to think in black and white. I’ve been working on some black and white film that I shot recently, and I think I have lived in this colorful world so long that it’s taking me some time to adjust to seeing it in b&w.
When the Water is Low
During the winter months, the Great Lakes drop a tremendous height, revealing features along waterside that are submerged most months of the year. Arriving at Europe Bay, we were greeted by a wide, somewhat muddy and rocky ‘beach’, not exactly what you’re hoping for having woken up an hour before sunrise to get to a location. This was, I think, one of the first times that I actually planned to go on a sunrise shoot. Don’t get me wrong, it’s happened a bunch, but with less intention, you know. Having arrived at a spot that had such little potential right off the bat was a little disheartening, but, best thing you can do when you’re somewhere that doesn’t have anything all that interesting to photograph, is move your feet. Go for a walk in one direction or another. You never know what you might come across, like what you find at this peninsula at the end of Europe Bay.
