Shooting India with a Monochrom

At first, I really didn't felt comfortable the idea of shooting this country that is full of life and color with only a black & white camera, hence I also brought along another system (Micro 4/3s) to complement my other shots. Overall, am satisfied with the combo, and would not hesitate to bring the MM again. Thanks for looking!

Varanasi is a haven. I can be left there for a couple of days and shoot all day. Rajasthan too.

Beautiful, I love the shot of the Taj Mahal especially. I think you've wrung out a beautiful and interesting image of what is perhaps one of the most photographed places on the continent

Dave, these photos are very good but b&w does not do India justice. I am guilty of it too.

I don't agree (but I've never been). Bright saturated colours has been done to death in India, it gets very repetitive. Black and white simply shows a different India.

I think the photos are marvellous.

p.s. Even if it was a year ago now!

A week ago saw super saturated, make your eyes bleed,
color of India.
First thing I did was turn off, "Vivid color" on my Nikon.
Seeing these classic BW images, well composed, neatly framed,
a sheer joy to both eyes and heart.
Great work.

really beautiful shots there.

i was still having a dilemma whether to shoot more slide films or black and white films on my coming trip to india. was leaning towards black and white more since i can print them in the darkroom.

now looking at your pictures, i think i have decided.
