When Beth first told me about her idea to do an all black and white shoot I was instantly on board. I had been wanting to do something like this for awhile. Beth had shown me an inspiration photo that was taken on a sand dune, and we decided that even though it was a big time commitment some shoots are just so epic that they have to happen.
Photographer’s note: I set my cameras to a monochrome mode so I only saw the image previews in black and white. Even if you shoot RAW you’re seeing a JPEG preview on the LCD screen, so it’s still possible to change that preview and not impact the RAW file. I culled in Photomechanic (still seeing black and white), and used my black and white preset on Lightroom upon import. So I’ve never seen any of these photos in color.
