Monochromatic still life

I think photography in the comfort zone of each of us is very little challenging and, more importantly, it contributes to the decrease and possibly almost the total loss of our “creative productivity.”

Seeking extremes in experimentation in photography (but, not so much, I would say) I decided to start a series that I tentatively am calling “Monochromatic Still Life“(*). These photos are all found still life, i.e., they were not constructed.

(*) ‘monochromatic’, strictly from the point of view of photography and not of painting.

They are JPG-only photos and they have been taken from the Lumix LX100II camera) directly, without any treatment, on the ‘dynamic monochrome’s‘ film simulation setting.

Hope you like it. I hope this motivates people to go beyond the routine of each one in artistic photography.

I'm an amateur photographer based in the city of São Carlos, São Paulo state, SE Brazil. I used to make photographs since I was about 15-17 years old. My first camera was a Olympus Trip, an analogue camera. Many years after that I switched to several digital cameras. Presently I own a Nikon D500 with a small set of lenses and a Fujifilm X100T 23mm. A few years after my retirement as an university professor, after teaching Environmental Chemistry at the Federal University of São Carlos (UFSCar) for 45 years, I decided to invest money and time dedicating myself more seriously to photography. I´ve taken on-line courses as well as I´ve participated to various photography festival across Brazil. By far, my biggest interest is street photography. And in it, I'm interested in portraits, everyday street scenes and architecture.
