Made with pride by the DeviantArt community BROWSE ALL ART

I am currently set to black and white mode when it comes to photography. Partially this is because of two books: "Genesis" by Sebastiao Salgado and "Aus dem fotografischen Werk" by Robert Haeusser. Salgado presents breathtaking landscape and nature photography; Haeusser's images are moody and quiet.

The second reason is that spring and summer are excellent seasons for infrared photography. I prefer to convert the images to black and white instead of using the strange colours that can be coaxed out of them.

Hey, finally everything is green again, and I use black and white instead of colour? Yes. I appreciate the shades of green nature offers now but black and white emphasizes pattern, shapes and structures. Infrared photography presents sunlit green as almost white - the so-called Wood effect - which gives the picture a ghostly or surreal touch.

For now, I go with the flow.
