Black And White Painted Desert
Bob and Nadine Johnston
Photograph - B&w Fine Art Available On Canvas Or Print
A Black and White Closeup of a Spectacular Peak or Formation in the Painted Desert. In the style of Ansel Adams a mentor. The colors are ever changing in the Painted Desert, and really deceptive as they seldom show the true colors. Colors never show the true tonal gradation of subjects. As a Photographer who learned Photography in the 30's and 40's who was a student of Ansel Adams and Edward Weston, most of my life was focused on creating Black and White images as they are longer lasting. Color fades, the haze in the Grand Canyon distorts the real colors. Black and white images last much longer with archival processing than color prints. There is also something much more dramatic to me about a black and white print, so they are preferred in my family. There are also a very large number of black and white prints sold in the world, most museums will only display black and white photography..
