Closeup photos of people with high contrast between them and the background are hard to come by. With the snap focus of the Ricoh cameras they’re a little easier than with a conventional DSLR. (At least that’s my opinion.)

It’s often as much about the context as the subject itself.

Experimenting with black and white….. It takes a whole new way of seeing but done right, I like it a lot because there is no leaning on pretty color to bailout an otherwise ordinary shot.

Muir Woods to be exact. A lovely national park just north of San Francisco. The light among these giant redwoods varied constantly from harsh direct sun to a gloomy darkness, making the extreme contrast hard to handle. This couple in front of me just got kissed by the sun in a way that created a silhouetted look that I liked.

I would find it hard to describe what I see here except to say that the hand carved curves, falling like fabric on the face of the tall bowl, stand in stark contrast to the perfectly symmetrical prissy circles of the wall covering.
