Simplicity, Again

Sometimes, we (myself included) tried too hard, by taking numerous considerations on lighting control, camera settings, composition options and many other (fill in the technique of your choice) tricks to get the best image possible. Sometimes, I put all that aside, found a good subject, and just whacked the camera directly without much thinking. Sometimes, these shots work very well indeed, and one of them was this man in the unbrella hat. Simplicity works, because the umbrella hat and the friendly look in the man's eyes were compelling enough to make the shot happen. Why black and white? I did not like how the overly colorful umbrella did not match his shirt and the background colors.

  5. Black and white are the colors of photography. To me they symbolize the alternatives of hope and despair to which mankind is forever subjected.

  6. There is only you and your camera. The limitations in your photography are in yourself, for what we see is what we are.
