Classic and Romantic :: Black and White Portrait Photography
Black and white prints have a refined quality about them. Their simplicity and uncluttered look gives the subject a polished, high-class feel. Without the distractions of color, the picture allows the viewer to recognize the individuality and uniqueness of the subject.
Covering Flaws, While Bringing Out Hidden Detail..
With black and white photography, you can find interest in everyday objects and scenes around you. What might appear boring when shot in color suddenly becomes fascinating when captured in black and white.
Black and white works very nicely for portrait photography. Skin tones are mellowed; blotches, blemishes, and uneven shading is less easily noticed than it is in color photos.
