“In black and white, there are more colors than color photography, because you are not blocked by any colors so you can use your experiences, your knowledge, and your fantasy, to put colors into black and white.” – Anders Petersen
I almost titled this post favorite moment of the year, but that wouldn’t be true. I love photography. I love seeking out amazing shots to capture and sharing them with the world. That’s why I started posting my photos on social media and on my blog. I wanted to share some of the great sights and places I have been able to capture over the last few years. The first photos I posted was back in 2018. We had just come back from a cruise. It was the first time I had been out of the country, and I saw places I had never seen before. The focus of photography was places I was traveling to. Every time we go out of town, I have all of my camera gear in tow because I never know what amazing sights I will stumble upon, and my phone isn’t good enough. When the pandemic hit last year, travel was out of the question. I started to take pictures of some of my favorite places in Charlotte. This allowed me the opportunity to practice and grow my skills. I learned by taking photos of the same spots over and over again at different times, weather, and seasons allowed me to practice new skills preparing me for the next time I was able to travel.
When we visited Fripp Island in South Carolina last winter, I took advantage and headed to the beach at sunrise. Brought my camera and waited for the sun to come up. It was one of the most magical mornings I had ever seen. While it looks incredible in color, this shot also looks amazing in black and white. You can see all of the details that the light selectively reveals as the sun comes up. 2021 had its ups and downs, but overall it was a great year. I am looking forward to all of the opportunities that 2022 has to offer.
Thank you for following and checking out my posts. I hope you 2022 is more amazing than your 2021.
