Vincent Lowe Photography - Index to Monochrome Work
Back to IndexMonochrome Photography

I became interested in photography in my late teens, at the same time as I started outdoor activities, starting off with a Halina Paulette 35mm camera.  I used to click away merrily without much thought to composition, eventually accumulating hundreds of colour slides, most of which were absolute rubbish. Once I started on black & white and began printing my own photographs, I very soon realised that things would have to improve if I wasn't to spend hours in the darkroom printing this absolute rubbish.

Skip the waffle
and get to the


I began to think a bit more, looking around for different viewpoints etc., and trying to visualise the end result before pressing the shutter, and results quickly improved.  I progressed to my first SLR camera, a Practika Nova (which I still have), then a second-hand Pentax Spotmatic.  After this was stolen I bought my first Olympus OM1, and I've stuck to these excellent cameras ever since for 35mm work.  In recent years I've used a Bronica SQ outfit (6x6cm) for most of my monochrome work.

Update, June 2014. I stopped using film a long while ago and now use Nikon D300 (D7200 since Aug 2015) and a D200 for timelapse photography.

Here is a selection of my favourites that I've taken over the years - hope you like them.  I will change or add to these on an irregular basis, check the What's New page.
