The Monochrome Photographer

For more than a year now, I have been dressed in full monochrome schemes. I was partially inspired by Wesley Chan from WongfuProductions who also mostly dressed himself in black, white and gray. There is a certain appeal to looking completely lacking of bright colors, and the simplicity of matching outfits - all monochrome colors go well together. I started having darker clothing, many black shirts and pants because being a photographer, especially when I am on assignment, it is best to wear everything dark. It is an unofficial dress code, but this dress code has spilled to my casual, non-work clothing. It is also fun to find different variety of color-less shirts, pants and shoes. With the absence of colors, patterns and design become more important, but I have always opted for simplicity. Anything plain works for me. Now that I dress myself in monochrome, maybe I should do more black and white photography!

  1. Now wouldn't it be nice to see the Robin Wong take on one of the Leica Monochrom models? If you can ever rent or lend a Q3 Monochrom or something similar to review, I bet that would be a video/blog post ❤️

    1. Nope, quite impossible to find any of them here.

    2. Yeah, here where I live (Brazil) they're also impossible to find. But here, even Olympus and Panasonic are nowhere to be seen: Sony and Canon, and if you search hard some Fuji, are pretty much the only options 💔
