The Heavens Above

Mediums: Framed Forex, Metal, and Archival Paper


Grey days in the city offer perfect conditions for moody black and white photos. Monotone photography is all about textures, shading, and contrasts that are not so readily revealed through color. Exploring a city on a day like this is an ideal way to find an abundance of these kinds of subjects.

In this shot, the building provides sharp, distinct lines and geometry with the stark contrast of whites and blacks. The heavens above provide a wonderful gradient of grey waves rolling past the rigid structure of the urban tower, and a brief white highlight reaching down to the treed penthouse deck. The layers of texture and contrast immediately caught my eye, and, as I often do in Vancouver, I headed for the nearest parking garage to gain a clear view of the subject.

This shot was finished using Adobe Lightroom® and an older version of the Nik collection photo editing suite. The right editing software is as critical a tool for the modern digital photographer as the darkroom tools were for film photographers of the past. The goal for me is to draw out the emotion and introspection of the moment and share them with the viewer.

Although all of images are color compatible for viewing online, most computer monitors vary in their color configurations. The images that you see may not have accurate color representation.
