Zenfolio | Darcie Sternenberg Photography | About

I photograph in black and white as a way of introducing abstraction to a scene. Photography in the absence of color is, by definition, a departure from reality. Although I love to travel and photograph the exciting and unusual, I often find images that evoke more meaning in the everyday. For me capturing these images involves a deliberate process of searching for and ultimately visualizing the familiar, forgotten or unnoticed in an extraordinary way. The more I photograph, the more I see and appreciate the beauty in the ordinary. I sometimes employ slow shutter speeds to alter the reality of a scene and to create a feeling of mystery.
