Welcome to the wonderful world of Black & White Photography!
A lot of people ask why on earth, would you still shoot in Black & White when our cameras are able to produce such true vivid color that represents the world as we actually see it.
To best answer this:
BW Photography offers a timeless beauty.
By removing the color, we remove the distractions and that causes the viewer to really concentrate on the image without the distraction of color.
With Black & White you see the light better. With color removed the beauty of highlights and shadows become more defined.
Highlights reveal, and of Shadows define.
Black & White helps emphasize emotion.
Without the distraction of color can provide a stronger emotional connection to your subject.
Some of the greatest photographers in the world know the importance of Black & White photography and tend to use Black & White when creating a fine art collection.
So why not challenge yourself. Take a week and shoot only in Black & White you’ll begin to see why Black & White photography should be a tool in your photographers toolbox.
