Manipulating The City ~ Just returned from a Fine Art Black and White class in Charlotte, North Carolina. The instructor, Marie Otero certainly knows how to mix it up! We walked the city, defined it in black and white, and manipulated it. In the course of all this we were escorted off of rooftops by security, attended a parking lot tail-gate pre-game event to snap some candids, photographed the city day and night, had some great meals, and enjoyed each other’s company throughout the weekend.
If you ever get a chance to shoot with Marie or take a class with her ~ go for it! While I have always appreciated good black and white photography, I now have a sense of what I am doing with it.
