The Black and White experiment continues! I’ve heard back from a couple of my publishers and they really liked the first set. So, I think I’ll stick with it as the training camps continue.
Once the official season begins, this will probably be a different story. I have a feeling that my submitted shots will be a mix of both black and white and color, with color being around 90%. This ratio is the result of trying to balance creativity with practicality. In order to remain a photographer–and have the opportunity to take these chances–I have to sell photographs. If the market demands color, then I have to supply color. Of course, I can continue to push my perspective, but at some point, I do need to eat!
The photos to the right were taken with my Canon 70-200mm f2.8 and Canon 10-20mm f3.5-4.5 lenses. I rarely get to use my ultra-wide angle lens for sports photography nd it’s nice to pull it out of the back once in awhile.
