Shadows in BW or Color

By | Gothenburg, Street Photography, Sweden | No Comments

The eternal question; black and white or color. ;)

My thought is that if the color doesn’t do anything for the  shot then I go black and white. I always try both, and contrary to many non-photogaphers  opinion, black and white doesn’t really improve a bad photo. A bad shot is always a bad shot. Right?

You might know that I prefer black and white over color, but this is something that I have to consider for every photo I take. Therefore, I have decided to start “thinking color” when I look for shots in the future. I will still continue to develop my black and white photography for the better, with Streets in color mixed into it. ;)

Here’s a color street shot that really caught my attention. Her clothes and the background worked well together, don’t you think.


Other times It’s not that easy of a choice. When you see a shot that work well both as a black and white and in color, I have to develop them in both and share them in both color and bw.
What are your thoughts? Let me know in the comments.

Working Outside - Street Photography

“As an employer it’s important to give the employee a chance to work outside”  – Well, I totally agree. ;)

I hope you all use these situations life gives you to take a street shot with a little humor in it. This is perhaps not that funny but it’s something I never could let pass me by. Keep your eyes open and capture what life throws at you.

Keep shooting :)

Rainy Evening

In the rain - Street Photography
The year started exactly like last year ended, with rain. ;)
I often go out after dark  and try to find something different. Lately this has not been easy, due to the utter lack of light. People shun the light sources and make it even harder to get anything interesting so I haven’t been out as much as I hoped.

The above is shot with my trusted little Panasonic GX1, on a dark and rainy evening as I was out getting a cake for my birthday. ;)

Skaters in action

Skaters in action - Street Photography
A summer´s day and two skaters are having fun.
I’m very partial to harsh shadows so I tend to take these shots in the afternoon as the sun is low but still gives me strong lines between shadow and light and long shadows from the subjects, like from the skater above.

Train station in Gothenburg, Sweden on a sunny and very warm summer day.
I often try to incorporate a triangle into my shots. Lines and Geometry is very important for me and I always look for those Geometric lines, shadows and light when I roam the streets.
