New Chicago Black and White Photos Collection

Chicago Icons in Black and White

The photos in the Chicago Black and White collection include some of Chicago’s most popular and iconic attractions. Black and white can totally change the character of a photo. So I’ve transformed photos of the Chicago skyline, skyscrapers, Wrigley Field, Union Station, Chicago Theatre, Buckingham Fountain, The Bean Cloud Gate, Sears Tower / Willis Tower, Field Museum, Picasso Sculpture and more.

The editing in this collection has been applied consistently across all photos in the series. These photos would be useful for a project such as prints for decorating an office.

Currently there are about 50 photos in the collection and I’ll add more soon.

New Chicago Prints and Stock Photos

I’ve created a new series of toned Chicago photos that are available for sale to buy as prints at my Photoshelter website and license as stock photos at Istockphoto. The toning includes variations in blue, cream, aqua, black and white, and HDR. I’ve been working at including more detail on my Chicago photos such as building names, building addresses, bridge names, and streets. This new series was mainly created from shoots I did in late 2011 and early 2012. Here are some examples:
