Photography Black & White

Black & White

Not all photography works well in black and white. I choose opt for black and white according to the subject matter. For example: if there is an absence of colour, the background is not complicated, the simplicity of the image is beautiful and there is anything dramatic in the composition. With a loss of colour sometimes an image can lose depth so choosing the right 'mode' is important.

This collection works by using contrast, symmetry, juxtapositioning and small details. My preference is usually for colour so black and white photography is a challenge for me. I intend to continue exploring and experimenting with black & white.
