Working in Color

Every since switching to LR3 I’ve been experimenting with color. I guess sometimes people think we folks that adore B&W do not like color for reason. I beg to differ, I think I’ve finally arrived with the tonalities that I’ve always yearned. So from now on, don’t be surprised when I share some color frames.

South Beach Swagger — Nikon D80


I think color and black & white can coexist together in harmony, so here’s a frame to begin such a process, well actually to continue, since I already published this the other day.

As usual, I like to set you guys up with the scene. I was at South Beach and it was already getting late, this juxtaposition caught my eye immediately, boom, I pressed the trigger and this is the result.

    Thank you all for your insights and comments, they are all very appreciated, cheers everyone.

  2. Nice one Jorge. Very Daido, in keeping with your recent theme. I like how her shadow disperses off in different directions. Wonderful mate.

  3. Thank you Jorge, you’re absolutely correct. I know we’ve talked about this on Twitter several times but your premise is 100% true and as I mentioned on the post. I think they both can coexist in harmony. There is more to come, thanks for chiming in.

  4. I love the colors and the subject. I’m glad to see you’ve started experimenting more with color as I think that most people that do street photography automatically assumed that every piece of work should be B&W. I have nothing against it but there’s opportunity to be different by incorporating color in this style of photography because EVERYONE else is doing B&W. I’m interested in seeing how much more you push the usage of color. Nice tone indeed!
