The Artist in B&W
This is a cross-selection of my B&W Film & Digital photography. There are, 5 collections; 2 shot with B&W Film, 3 Shot Digitally, where, 2 are processed to monochrome.
This is also my very first entry to Creativepool's 'Annual' initiative...
Ken – The Artist

I utilise the ProPhoto AirS Lighting System to achieve desired 'working-apertures' and as 'fill-in'. I often apply B&White Lee Filters for visual FX. Prime Lenses are a must for all photography.
* All photographic details are pencilled on the reverse of each handprint.
* Limited editions are autographed and numbered from, 1–5.
* Each fine-art handprint displays my unique emboss mark.
