What’s so good about black and white photos?

Ok, yes this is one of my popular themes but that’s because I really believe in the power of black and white photographs. They just convey more emotion! Take out the colour and there are no distractions. You just look straight at the subjects’ faces and see what they’re feeling. Maybe you also empathise a bit and feel their emotions too. 

   

Black and white photos also convey more character somehow. Think of all those powerful portraits and film stills from the 1950’s-James Dean, Marilyn Munroe, Elizabeth Taylor, Cary Grant, Audrey Hepburn-they all convey such character and are still classic photos even now. 

Maybe there’s also a timeless feel about black and white photos. Without doubt black and white photography is my favourite medium for both wedding and portrait photography.
