Color and Black and White

Welcome to Color World

Welcome to the world of color

I truly love to shoot in black and white but on gray, rainy days I become starved for color.  This photo, shot at the Museum of Glass in Tacoma, WA, managed to capture both.  As these 2 guests entered the museum the outside color seen through the doorway became muted but the inside colors of light beaming through the museum’s brightly colored glass windows was quite vibrant.

I did remove just the slightest bit of color from the diagonal stripes of the jacket of the gentleman on the right, in the doorway, in order to keep the outside view black and white, but other than that, it naturally appeared as a monochrome background outside.

About Kolman Rosenberg

My interest in photography began as a college newspaper and yearbook photographer during the stormy 1960s and 1970s. I was influenced by many of the great photojournalists and documentary photographers such as W. Eugene Smith, Walker Evans, Dorothea Lange, Gordon Parks, Margaret Bourke-White and other black and white photographers of Life Magazine and the earlier Farm Security Administration. Though many of these photographers documented the horrors of war and the plight of poverty, they also showed me the dignity and adaptability of human beings in their desire to prevail.
