Shooting in Black and White...the nurturing of my photographic eye!
Sometimes I question myself, Why do the majority of my photos end up in
black and white? Why does black and white excite me so much?
Well it's really hard to explain sometimes, it's just my creative choice.
I love the highlights, shadows and the mystery that comes with black and white photography. Sometimes "color" is a distraction. I actually see things in black and white even before I push the shutter button. Black and white photography helps emphasize emotion as well as making a stronger connection to the subject matter. It's both classic and timeless with a throwback quality.
Every photo, however, does not translate well into a black and white and has to remain in color; but I believe black and white makes for a strong image.
