This community is created for photographers who enjoy the monochrome image and for those who want to understand the craft of black and white photography with an emphasis on Street content.
Light and exposure is key to exploring the world of monochrome.
The philosophy for this community is to help each other understand the image details behind a concept. Essentially, how the image was created. To do this, it is necessary to understand how different camera models and different exposure controls treat light and exposure. We learn from each others techniques and treatments of the exposure triangle. This community is designed to allow you to browse the photos and read a description and the details of camera, exposure, and (or) post-processing techniques in the body of the Post.
If you signed up for this community, then I assume you love to shoot monochrome or want to learn something about the craft of monochrome. It is reasonable to say that not all images will compel a viewer to click on it to open it in the light box. To open a photo in order to get photo details takes time. Most of us don't have that time. Argue with me all you want. I open only a few images that I find striking because I want to see the depth and tone of the image. It is rare to take such time.
Another dimension to the request to include exposure details is for you to understand your own process as a photographer. Becoming aware of the exposure settings in the digital SLR world brings many photographers into a completely different dimension of photography. I know many photographers that own DSLR cameras (that I could only dream of) and never leave automatic exposure. Break free from Program Mode and try out some Manual settings. Know the exposure triangle and you will find monochrome heaven.
To include image details in the body of the Post helps all of us discover how the image was made as we scroll through our community. We can scan and notice differences in settings for landscapes or settings for portraits. We don't ask for much: Camera. Basic Settings. And if the image is really post-processed, then the Processing Technique.
Also, I have come to learn that if someone can not tell me about their image, or they do not reply to my request to add details to their image, the image is not their own. Stealing images is rampant and we frequently find stolen images in this community. Details uncover thievery.
