    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..

    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 love black and white photos,

    especially of blues musicians playing their instruments. If feel it truly captures their very essence. I am also fond of black and white portraits of love children from the hippie days.

    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

    I actually don't really like colored

    photography. I appreciate it for what it is but it fails terribly in comparison to black and white photography in my opinion. One of my favorite photographers, Vivian Maier took the majority of her photos in black and white, and although her colored photos are done with the same...

    A good photograph will prove to the viewer how

    little our eyes permit us to see. Most people, really, don’t see—see only what they have always seen and what they expect to see—where a photographer, if he’s good, will see everything. And better if he sees things he doesn’t expect to see.Leon...

    I think it's unique and beautiful.

    Though, my friends think it's nothing but pure depression and needs color, but only wish they could see what I see. Nothing, but pure beauty ness.

    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...

    There was a beautiful photo gallery I saw in

    the news earlier this morning. I don't want to post the link because there were so many ads and I don't want anyone else to get inundated with ads or if you have a computer that gets slow very easily with ad volume on a page load. Every picture is a motion picture yet the...

    There is something so pure about black

    and white photography, whether it is of nature or of a person. I love the simplicity, and I find the statement it makes is far more powerful than when there is lots of color in a photo.

    I love black and white photography!

    I use a mobile app called "Dramatic". You might like the app too. It has various options of filter. Just take a good angle of your subject when taking photos and then use dramatic filters.

    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.

    Some shots capture the shadows

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