The fourth post in this series features several monochrome street photography compositions. Each image followed my typical black and white workflow, which ends with processing to emulate Agfa APX 100 b&w film in Alien Skin’s Exposure X3.

Monochrome Monday: Uptown Charlotte Cityscapes

I’m starting a street photography and urban landscape series from a recent visit to my hometown of Charlotte, North Carolina. Arriving early mornings, before my all day meeting sessions in Uptown, I found a lot of great urban subjects to cover. Late afternoon walks after work also offered up some great street photography opportunities.

Brick and Wood Arbor on UNCC Campus

Back in September, my oldest son, a freshman at UNCC in Charlotte, was giving us a tour of the campus.  Near the Atkins Library, I noticed this rather interesting arbor structure. Its contemporary brickwork and wooden arbor make for a nice respite to study, meet or just enjoy the weather. The lines, shapes and textures also provided an interesting subject to test out my new Tamron 15mm – 30mm super wide zoom. I feel the wide view and lens distortion both contribute to an impactful composition.  I’ve really been enjoying this lens and look forward to mastering the large 150mm filter system I purchased along with it.

Super Silos In Uptown Charlotte, 3 pics

The Archer Daniel Midland flour and corn mill plant in uptown Charlotte, NC remains one of the nation’s largest milling facilities.  Over the years, local neighborhood based organizations have pushed to have the facility closed.  Yet it remains a part of the Charlotte skyline. Either ADM “supermarket to the world” has leveraged their deep pockets and army of lawyers to stay put, or folks in Charlotte have gotten used to the tall silos and train traffic.  Maybe both.

I shot this series from a Brookshire Freeway overpass in the late afternoon. Though I was careful, the oncoming traffic was intense.  Shooting a bracketed range of exposures from my tripod, there were a few series I re-shot because of the “bouncing” overpass from passing big rigs. The late afternoon sun on the adjacent NC Music Factory Blvd also caught my eye.
