Flickr a Week 18a: ‘Lathering’

Monochrome is an art form popular among street shooters, but the purest excellence takes typical things and makes them monuments to hues of grey and black, of light and shadows. Bernhard Hanakam captured self-titled “Lathering” on April 6, 2020, and I just love it. The photo wins the Sunday Spot for clarity, composition, and lighting. Vitals: f/11, ISO 100, 1/60 sec, 18mm.

Bernhard describes himself as”an ambitious photographer from Eastern Upper Franconia (Bavaria, Germany), who is addicted to photography since the age of 4. With my Nikon D7100, I shoot apparently anything what comes to mind—and in front of my lens”. He made the moment using that camera with Sigma 18-35mm F1.8 DC HSM | A attached. Mr. Hanakam joined Flickr in October 2015.
