Photographing Chinatown HNL: Black and White

My previous post covered a few of the photographs I really felt looked best in color, this post shows photographs I really liked in Black and White. Capturing the deep character, feelings evoked, or the message I wish to convey is very often found in the photo editing process.

Late Night Grocery – As I walked through Chinatown, it’s character asked for additional work to be done to certain photographs. Ones such as this Black and White wants more clarification. I will be printing this one and working with the idea of adding fiber work.

This photograph of the entrance of the Maunakea Marketplace at night is also asking for more from me. The Marketplace draws a crowd of tourists in addition to the neighborhood regulars with a Yelp rating of 3.5 stars. I am curious as to how many stars its regular nighttime homeless visitors would give it. This is another photograph I will be printing out.

Love the patterns of the palm leaves and using the Gioconda Charcoal & Pencil Drawing kit I received from the Magdalene Odundo Ceramics Workshop I have started sketching them.

My international experiences have provided the opportunity to swim in the gorgeous tropical waters around Hawai’i, hiking in the rainforests of Far North Queensland, and the breathtaking beauty in Africa. Utilizing my custom-made steel tools, my favorite pieces to create are large-gauge wire crochet sculptures. My meticulously handcrafted designs will enrich your office, home, and outdoor living spaces. Currently I am dividing my time between the Tokyo Bay Area and Hawai’i and am open for commission art works.
