Choosing an Image in Siouxland, Omaha, NE

14 Nov

When out photographing in and around Siouxland I am conscious most times of making images I think will work best for the subject. And more often I photograph in color.

The students I teach photograph in color and it’s how they see. But I do make them think about taking photos in B&W and choosing what works well for the subject and image they want. And sometimes choosing becomes a no-brainer. Some images just stand out in one medium, and then get lost in the translation when choosing another.

    Cool 😎 I think Kodak came out with color film in ’42 however developing was very expensive in the ’60’s we didn’t snap many ❗️ Today ya can snap 1500 large px images saved on a SDHC mini card and view them but it is still pricey to print chosen photos 😉
