If you’re interested in street photography then check out Henri Cartier-Bresson.


Henri Cartier-Bresson (August 22, 1908 – August 3, 2004) was a French photographer considered to be the father of modern photojournalism. He was an early adopter of 35 mm format, and the master of candid photography. He helped develop the “street photography” or “real life reportage” style that has influenced generations of photographers who followed.

From what I’ve read on the internet Henri Cartier-Bresson(HCB) has a massive following of seriously passionate photographers who to this day use the same equipment and techniques as HCB and think of themselves as purist’s and maybe they are. I really enjoy viewing some of their work, I like their attitude too though I can understand if some people would think its a bit over the top. To get a sense of what I’m talking about you should read this free document “Why We Shoot And How: Street Photography For The Purist“.

There’s a lot of ways to convert an image to black and white using many different software packages, the topic is probably worthy of an entire post and a screencast. In the end I think digiKam gave me the best results. digiKam has a black and White converter that can simulate analog film. So when I would read about the different film some of the masters would use I would try to choose a similar option in digikam.
