    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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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...

    I think color can sometimes be underwhelming,

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

    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...
