    For some reason, to me some pics look better in

    black and white. I always take both or edit to BW to see 80% of time BW pic looks better.

    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...

    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.

    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 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...

    please help me buy my first DSLR I've been an

    aspiring photographer since I was twelve years old. Over the years I've only used a two day rental of a Canon compact camera. The hardest thing is to see a moment and not being able to capture when I see it because I don't have the money for the rental camera most of the time...

    There is something so raw about black

    and white photography. I feel like sometimes without color we are able to focus more on what the picture is actually conveying. The contrast between the dark shadows and the white space really illuminate the truth behind the photo. Here's a photo I took of a cat in black and...
