Street Photography in North Shields
It isn’t very often you find a old fashioned shop full of character, selling award winning Bacon, Fisherman’s Cough Elixir and Head Splitters, but when I do find one I’m in like a shot because it’s usually full of local characters.
“When you photograph people in colour, you photograph their clothes and dresses. But when you photograph people in Black and White, you photograph their souls!” Ted Grant known as ‘The Father of Canadian Photojournalist’
In this blog I’m going to talk about my love of analogue photography, nothing digital, no computers needed!!
But first I’ll tell you about the image above… yes believe it or not it was shot using black and white film! It’s one of my earliest images. I used a red filter which made the red of the KitKat bar lighter in colour and then an artist friend of mine hand painted in the red on my finished print.. Brilliant!

This is a topic that seems to get many photographers over excited, we all have our own views and thoughts on which medium is better for creating images. There is no doubt that digital is marvellous, you can achieve amazing results shooting black and white digitally.
