I’m a little obsessed with Black and White photography. It’s a format that just suits so many images, the complete lack of distractions in the image, the clean look, I just love it.
What ever the photograph, it just works, be it Portraits, landscapes, urban landscapes, architecture. Not only that, it’s a medium that adapts really well to all lighting situations. It sets the mood of the image, it just looks good. In portrait photography, especially streetwork, taking the color out of an image lets the subject speak for themselves. Its raw, it’s stripped back, it’s honest and it allows you to show the true person.
I love the subtlety of tones that black and white images can have. In a world dominated by many millions of colours various electronic devices are capable of producing, black and white is a refreshing change.
It’s not just black and white, it’s the tones. Check out some of my other Black and white images in my Gallery.
