I Love Black and White Photography

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 57,215 People

    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.

    Black and white photo restorationbalances the

    black and white color tone in equal levels after proper cleaning of the images which have to be retouched to highlight the vintage charm. Particular required in wedding photography or ad campaigns where the old life feels magic works favorably to the product centric promotion...

    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...

    I think color can sometimes be underwhelming,

    unlike black and white, where you just immerse yourself into the image and your imagination takes hold

    When you take a picture of someone in colour,

    you capture their clothes but when you take a picture of someone in black & white, you capture their soul

    Trying To Explain Why I Like B+W Photography

    Personally i feel a B+W photo can tell a greater story than its coloured counterpart, sometimes i feel all the colours distract me from looking at the picture and trying to find the story behind it. When the photo is colourless more attention is placed on the subject or the...

    Some shots capture the shadows

    and contrast better than others. I liked this one shot in black and white.

    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...

    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..

    Ohhh the contrast and shadows.

    ..so vivid so sexy! Ok, sexy might be overstating it, but there's something ethereal and mysterious about black and white photos. I used to love shooting IR back in the days of film. (sigh)

    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.
