Beautiful Black and White Photography
Black and white photography is a timeless and beautiful medium of photography, although it fell out of fashion at the discovery of colour photography, it has since made a comeback and is more popular than ever. This type of photography relies a lot on shape, texture and lighting in the scene being photographed, and so attention must be paid to these to get the most beautiful black and white photos. Consider the following tips to get the most out of your black and white photography:
1. Choose the right time of day for the best lighting, this is usually in the morning or evening because the sun casts long, dark shadows at these times, which adds more contrast to the image.
2. Visualize what your scene will look like in black and white, and note that contrasting colours don’t always convert into contrasting black and whites.
3. Look for contrasting dark and light areas for a more dramatic looking image.
