Back on the 31st of January this year, I started a blog on how I learnt to create monochrome photos, as someone who previously thought that mono "sucks the life out of the image". I've just uploaded my 29th post, "What a coincidence!" on what I call 'juxtapositions of coincidence' and how you can increase your chances of capturing them. Earlier posts go into some detail about the learning process I went through, including the three principles I got through studying other people's photos on Flickr: encapsulation, orientation, and colour-toning.
I mostly shoot street, so if you're interested in that or in monochrome photography in general, please feel free to follow the blog. Thanks. Just click the link below the image below to go there.
