I want to set the stage for what I hope will be interesting images and monologues about photography. I resumed a serious avocation in photography some 15 years ago, corresponding to the rise of digital capture. But I wanted to do something more than postcard photos. Then six months ago I bit the bullet and forced myself to work exclusively in black and white. I went back through five years of photo archives to select candidates for my new monochromatic portfolio. The result is my updated website (www.irathomasphotos.com). Now I study black and white images everyday and strive to improve my insight, technique and interpretation. Moral (in photographic terms): to develop, focus.
