Day Twelve: Architecture & Monochrome ~ The Thai Wat in Vietnam

Vietnamese Thai Wat

This is a Thai Wat or Buddhist Temple in Vietnam near Ho Chi Minh City.

This is a Thai Wat or Buddhist Temple in Vietnam near Ho Chi Minh City in monochrome. I had the opportunity of taking the photograph but did not actually centralize the framing properly. We were given less than an hour to take photographs here as we were travelling quite a distance to another town.

Hopefully, I shall get another chance in future to shoot this uniquely designed Thai Buddhist Temple slowly and not in a rush.

Day Twelve: Architecture & Monochrome

From geometric patterns on skyscrapers to the ironwork on historical buildings, there are many opportunities to capture the beauty and complexity of architecture.

Consider this intricate, organic “doorway” of La Pedrera, a famous building by architect Antoni Gaudí in Barcelona, Spain:

Perhaps there’s a grand spiral stairwell at your favorite museum. A stunning Art Deco movie theater in your town. Or a futuristic micro-house on your block. How will you interpret this theme?

Today’s Tip: As we explored yesterday, color is a powerful element in photography. But let’s not forget black and white, or monochrome, which can be very dramatic! Black, white, gray, and shades in between interact in the frame in dynamic ways.

When we talk about monochrome in photography, we’re referring to images developed or executed in black and white or in varying tones of only one color.

Train your eye to look for architectural elements that translate in black and white: sharp lines and patterns, defined shapes, large surface areas, and a mix of very light and very dark colors. Compare the color and monochrome versions of today’s shot:

WPC Monochrome

The lines, shapes, and surfaces within the frame come alive in both versions in different ways.

If you’ve never gone monochrome, many devices let you switch to black and white shooting mode right in the camera. Or, shoot in color and convert your images to black and white (or grayscale) after in Photoshop or a free image editor like PicMonkey, GIMP, or Pixlr.
