I don't shoot much color film...
I am 99% a black and white kind of guy. I love the timelessness of it, the simplicity and the tonality that black and white can exhibit. I have nothing against color, but for me to use color film it really has to add something special to the image that I can’t accomplish with black and white. This is a choice, not a judgment. Southern California has some of the most beautiful light in the world and that light looks amazing in black and white and color. I am blessed to live here. The evening light at the El Mirage dry lake bed is simply glorious–the rich golds, the cool blues and everything in-between just beg to be shared on color film. So while you may not see this a lot from me, when you do there’s a good reason.
