Another photograph from my recent trip to McLelland Gallery. The size of some of the art can be overwhelming and I find my enjoyment comes from photographing a section of the whole. The use of black and white highlights show the different tones and light better than a colour photograph would.

If not photographing for a client, I will set my camera preview display to “monochrome” more often than not. I will always have the colour “negative” at my disposal, thanks to the benefits of photographing with RAW, but the in-camera processed display image, displayed on the back of the camera, will be shown as black and white. 

Back to the photograph, I love how the different angles of the near same material hold the light in different levels of brightness, almost like a paint-by-number painting.

Looking at the photograph, makes me want to return to the gallery to see how else I could photograph it. 

That’s it for now. Talk to you soon.
