I've always liked contrast-y shadow pictures but I never really got into shooting in Black and White. I felt that I would lose-out on a cool colour photo if I switched my digital camera to a BW mode. But this new camera (Ricoh GR3) has a "High Contrast Black and white" filter so I switch over to it and what can I say? I can now and shoot in Raw+ mode enabling me to have the best of both worlds. Check out this pictures from Couples Tower Isle, St. Mary, Jamaica. Currently flooding my IG at owen_123xyz
Vines growing up the side of the rocks along the path to the deck over the sea.
There is this little walk way that leads to the deck where they have dinner at the hotel.
The over hanging tree creates this silouette with contrasts with the bright white wood of the structure in the background.
Rock in the sea. The waves around it plus the shadow cast by the tree above it make a awesome soup of grays.
Window and rocks. I added the window into the frame because I like the simplicity of a clean window profile.
