The Dark Room Gallery, located in Essex Junction, Vermont, hosts a different photographic art show each month. Hopeful participants can apply online. Upwards of 1,000 entries from throughout the world is common for their shows. My piece entitled “Bent” was selected to be in the Black and White show held in May of 2015. I took this image in a slot canyon located in northern Arizona. This was my second visit to the slot canyons and I had learned how to control the high contrast environment….by not shooting directly into the sun.! I think that converting these highly colorful slot canyon images to b&w adds a whole new way of looking at the canyon and the additional subtleties of shadow and light detail that is emphasized. I feel honored to have this image selected for the “Black and White” gallery at the Dark Room.
