    I love taking pictures of myself,

    then putting the black and white tint on it... I think it gives the pictures a more calm kind of feeling.

    Learning With B/w Photography

    Seeing black and white photography in old magazines and photography magazines is a magical experience. It seems to capture any moment more realistically than a color photo does. Of course light sensitive film has been far more expressive than digital, but the technology is...

    Unlike some people in today's world,

    I find black and white photography to be beautiful! Just like life, it is simpler and not as hard to comprehend like color photography. Black and white photography does many things that color photography just cannot do and that's what makes it special.

    Shooting a photograph takes skill,

    but being able to shoot a good black and white photograph takes more than just that. It takes emotion and thought. By taking away the color, you have nothing to distract from the photo. Black and white photography is the most raw artwork, making it so attractive.

    There is something so honest about black

    and white photography, especially with portraits. I don't know how to explain it. Does anyone get what I mean?

    There's something to be said about not giving

    the brain too much information. Much like listening to a story on the radio or reading a book is better than watching a full HD movie - give your mind the ability to fill in the blanks, and imagine the colours, the smells, the sounds, as it sees fit. It turns looking at a simple...

    Stay At Home Model

      In college my husband took several photography courses which developed into a bit of a passion for him. More often than not, he will be found with a camera nearby, whether he is working or at home. I’ve gotten used to it but it can be quite annoying sometimes. I will be...

    Black Men White Women

    I had a friend send me some black and while photos of black men with white women. So sexy and intimate. There is something to be said about the contrast.. It's beautiful. I love seeing my skin next to the dark skin of a black man . It's a huge turn on for me..

    Why I Will Never Give Up Film

    I love black and white photography. I love the aesthetic of it, the dramatic quality to it, and the amazing effects of the play of shadow and light. That being said I find with modern digital cameras even high end DSLRs black and white pictures never look right. They look like...

    Your worst battle is between what you know

    and what you feel. One of the hardest decisions you will ever have to make is when to stay put and try harder or when to just take your memories and move on. Sometimes you have to step outside of the person you’ve been, and remember the person you were meant to be, the...

    To me it's about seeing a photo in its true

    shades from dark (black) to light (white). The absence of colors means less distractions from this tonal range information.Not that colors are bad, but a lot of photos shot, especially using point and shoot and cell phone cameras have the colors off, usually because of the...
