Prior to and kinda concurrant to getting my hands on the Fuji X-T1 The Brothers Wright gave me a few rolls of Cinestill Film during dinner with Ryan Muirhead this past December-ish. It could have been January, though. I don’t remember
I have to digress a bit. I know I’ve been caught in a “Cartier-Bresson Vortex.” When I shoot for clients I’m shooting color. Digital color. Shooting black and white images is how I started when I was 10. I’ve loved seeing black and white for a long time. It always felt to me that it was a perfect foil to making color photos for clients.
It really wasn’t until I shot the M9 that I learned to really enjoy seeing some color street shots. Prior to that 99.9% of my street work was shot on black and white film. I didn’t see what was in my viewfinder in color; I saw it in monochrome. Seeing the .dng files come out of the M9 I saw the files that I originally shot in my mind as black and white. There were other frames that even though I may have seen them as monochromes they appeared to work in color. It got me thinking about color street shots and actually making more and more of them.
