The Word & Wings: June 17, 2019

I will instruct you and teach you in the way which you should go; I will counsel you with My eye upon you. Do not be as the horse or as the mule which have no understanding, Whose trappings include bit and bridle to hold them in check, Otherwise they will not come near to you. Many are the sorrows of the wicked, But he who trusts in the Lord, loyal-love shall surround him. Be glad in the Lord and rejoice, you righteous ones; And shout for joy, all you who are upright in heart.

Psalm 32.8-11

On Moving To The Dark Side

The phrase “The Dark Side” is weighted by those who are Star Wars fans where it became a key part of the plot. There’s another “Dark Side” that’s far from ominous! It’s the Dark/Light contrasts of B&W photography.

The Look

Black & White has long been a medium for expression and continues to hold our attention in photography. In many ways B&W communicates the intricacies of an image in a superior manner. Color often overwhelms our perception and the subtleness of a scene is missed.

Toward “Moving To The Dark Side” is taking some steps toward learning to digitally develop B&W images, a process which is still very much in development.

The following images are part of this growing process of expression. If you find yourself interested in growing in B&W processing, I’d highly recommend Blake Rudis and f.64 Academy. Blake is working with Jim Welninski and they’re excellent for developing your B&W artistry.

B&W artistry prints are also available. Enjoy “Moving To The Dark Side” . . .

The Word & Wings: June 10, 2019

Monday morning with the Word & Wings . . .

“If it is disagreeable in your sight to serve the Lord, choose for yourselves today whom you will serve: whether the gods which your fathers served which were beyond the River, or the gods of the Amorites in whose land you are living; but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.”

Joshua 24.15
