    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...

    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..

    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 :)

    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.

    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...

    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...

    I must admit that most of all i love black

    and white portraits and old b&w pictures of cities, it really moves my imagination. I think black and white photography, drawings etc are not as obvious as these beautiful colorful pictures where everything so visible, obvious and boring, this is how i feel.

    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.

    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.

    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
