Experimenting With Black and White Photography

Old Photos were always black and white and if you want to create the feel of a timeless photo black and white is a perfect option. There are many photographers who still prefer black and white all the time, but personally I like color.  I see the world in brilliant color and I use photography to capture the beauty I see, so I like my photos to be as natural as possible. There are times I like black and white but most of the time I prefer color.

Here is a photo of my hubby and 1st grandchild, this is such a classic moment that I think it works really well as a black and white photo.

There are times when black and white can add drama to a slightly boring picture like this one

No matter what style you like, it is best to shot in color and convert to black and white with a photo editing program.

  1. I like both although for some reason I think my favorite is black and white. I don’t know if it’s because it seems so dramatic or what. But you are right about color with certain photos, I sure wouldn’t want to miss those blue eyes.
