    Imagery

    I like to look at photos and find black and white to be just as good and in many cases better than colour pictures. I like to look at the shadowing and the depth in the images, and the lighting.  I could look at images for hours from still life and peoples faces to animals and...

    I am a photographer. And I absolutely love black

    and white photographs. Photography is my life, color is amazing as well if you have the right lighting and position of the photo taken.

    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...

    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.

    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...

    Another 'story telling black

    and white photo' btw this was only taken by a Nikon d3100 And AF-S DX Nikkor 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR lens. Pretty much a Starter camera and lens, same as the other picture I posted earlier. Had some difficulties, but overall I think it turned out pretty good. For me though. 😂

    Yes nature shots and others look nice in b&w.

    But, I think the b&w shots of women really are sexy.

    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...

    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.

    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..

    I think it makes a photo 'tell a story'

    because of the black and white effect, even though it's just a simple photo it makes it look sophistic? Maybe? It makes a certain magic into it. Wtf am I talking about? 😂

    I love nothing more than to take my photos in

    color and change them to black and white. There is something beautiful about it. My husband hates them in black and white, I always print an extra set for myself in black and while :)

    Stay At Home Model

    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
