Farmers Market in Black and White and Oranges Baskets


I went to the Farmers Market in Irvine last weekend but it was almost going to close so I only photo shoot couple of pictures. I converted some of them to black and white as I wanted to focus on the authenticity of market without the noise of colors. I’m still learning the true white and black processing but in those pictures I just applied basic processing through the color channels in Photoshop Elements standard black and white conversion then applied vintage effect.I liked those fiber (reed) baskets and was lucky to take pictures for them before the seller start wrapping up them and go.

I also saw this orange basket and I liked the contrast between the orange color and the basket.

Before I leave I was taking some rest in a shopping area near the market (University Center), I looked up at a building and I liked the windows with the clouds in the sky and I thought it worth capturing, I was lazy to move to get better composition so I shoot it while I was sitting on a bench, I think its not that bad.

  1. Cool! I’ve been posting some photos I took at the Dallas Farmer’s Market the last few days. Mine are in color, though. Nice to see how two folks can see similar things differently.

    1. Yea I just saw yours, sometimes seeing in black and white give different perspective, I usually shoot in colors but recently I’m trying to try out black and white. I liked your blog

  2. What a cool series of images. I LOVE the building … in fact it made me think of a piano with its black and white keys. I’m intrigued by your b&w’s both here and in your beach photos. I have a b&w workshop this coming weekend and I’m hoping to turn out equally beautiful shots. Thanks for sharing!
