Reimagining Toronto as a Black & White Indie Movie

I’ve been imagining Toronto as part of some indie movie in my head with some Black and White photography.


It’s a style that I’ve been experimenting for a while and it fits right in with Street Photography.

Street photography in Toronto is so much fun!

It has been a surprisingly rewarding venture for me artistically. Of the tonne of pictures that I click while commuting in and around Toronto, I have been able to capture some moments that I think have that ‘cinematic’ quality. I might be quite generous with that assertion.

While the rest of GTA is really pretty especially through the seasons, downtown Toronto is fun to capture with so much happening too. I love capturing shiny tall buildings. (hope to post them soon!)

Street Photography edits with Snapseed

I love playing around and getting to create a “mood or vibe” on Snapseed. Many a times, the end result isn’t what I initially envision but it was for the better. Does this happen with you guys?

Personally, I haven’t preferred black and white style before but but past few months I’ve begun to notice that some pictures do really speak more with all that colour stripped out. Especially, with Street Photography where you can capture emotions or translate that onto a picture with a few minor edits. I’m enjoying it so far and look forward to it.

(Snapseed is available on iOS and Android App stores)

I am quite tardy on updating these pictures on here, but this was a fun little post to create.
