My Davao images in black and white

My street scenes in Davao make me proud, because in its stark black and white distortion of reality, one can still see how clean and uncluttered my beloved city is.  Allow me to share a few of these scenes.

My love for street photography is influenced by my photojournalism field.  Whether I am in travel covering assignments, documenting events, doing landscapes, or fine art imagery,  I come into contact with people I find interesting.  They somehow weave their way into my composition for some human perspective.

Black and white images give off a dramatic atmosphere that colored photos sometimes cannot duplicate.  Devoid of color, we simply learn to focus on the impact of light and shadows, shapes and form, lines and perspective, textures and expressions.  While it simplifies composition, it exudes a timeless feel, enhancing the artistry of the photo you capture and the message you want to relay.

My street scenes in Davao make me proud, because in its stark black and white distortion of reality, one can still see how clean and uncluttered my beloved city is.  Allow me to share a few of these scenes.
