Monochrome Rome

I am not a big fan of black & white photos, unless they are perfectly exposed. I think optimizing the image is key in order to get a beautiful shot without distortion or loss of detail. And the problem with black & white is that you very often tend to over contrast the image in an attempt to strengthen or enhance the character and spirit of your subject.

I really think it is difficult to master the art of black & white photography, and personnally I’m not good at it. During my last holidays in Rome though, I tried to capture the essence of a great diversity of scenes in a monochromatic, vibrant way. Not easy… But I guess the result is not too bad. To be honest, I cannot wait to know your impressions of these pictures. So please let me know what you think!

  1. I personally think these are some of the best representations of that incredible eternal city I’ve ever seen. Very beautifully done indeed. You manage to capture the diversity in architecture and ages very well, through the use of B&W, highlighting the contrast of textures and styles in what is such a multifarious city. A triumph!
