Strolling, Waikiki Beach – Honolulu, Hawaii

In part two of my latest black and white Cinematics mini-series, I feature a classic view of Waikiki Beach with Diamond Head in the background. Though, most likely, you don’t often see this scene in black and white.

I feature this in monochrome because that’s the way I typically feature my street photography. Partially out of historical convention but also because black and white looks a little more artistic to me. Perhaps because it adds another level of abstraction to the image. After all, most of us don’t see the world without color.

I think I’ve gotten better with the subtlety of black and white. It requires its own kind of processing, compared to color. Here, for example, I purposely darkened the sky by manipulating the blue filter. The darker skies contrasts better with the white sand. Without that, the entire scene will look too white and bright.
