“Embraced by the light” or “Why I love black and white photography”

This post was set up in celebration of my first anniversary of my first post on my WordPress site. Done exactly on December 1, 2018. In it I will try to express a very peculiar feeling that occurs when shooting and I hope you feel like me: feel embraced by the light. Blessed by the light. Purified by the light.

Very often a color photo can undeniably capture my attention, my heart. Even the photos of great color masters (I won’t even name them): I may like it in the first instance , but within minutes of looking at it, I start to dislike it. I have a feeling of boredom. This is how I can express myself.

Following are some examples of black and white photos that I made throught the years that make me feel embraced by the light, blessed by the light, purified by the light. I sincerely hope you feel the same!

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.
