Black and White Photography

I began taking a black and white photography class at the North Seattle College continuing education program last week. One week in and it’s just been a bunch of people who are seemingly good photographers show me their photographs and saying “try looking at things this way!” But we had an assignment the first week and that assignment was to take some photographs in black and white and then share them. These are my first week photographs.

Starting off my black and white adventure nice and easy, these are simple lines on a heating vent. I used a macro lens to get the strange focus plane.
This is the view from the inside of John Grade’s Wawona sculpture that hangs in the Museum of History and Industry in Seattle.
These lights are above the lobby and the mezzanine of the UW Tower in U-District in Seattle.
I was pretty fascinated by the patterns that they formed with these lights.
The lights stretched all the way from one end of the lobby to the other and past the elevators and across two floors.
