Inspiration: Black & White Magic

Post image for Inspiration: Black & White Magic

“When you photograph people in black and white you photograph their souls.” – Ted Grant

Lately I have been fiercely drawn towards black and white photography. Something about it just jumps out at me, piercing right through to my soul. Maybe it’s because I’m not distracted by colors and instead my eyes go right to the raw emotion of the image. For some Sunday inspiration I wanted to share a collection of images that I’ve been drawn to lately. What do you think is so beautiful about black and white photography?

I’m a photographer and when I first started taking photos I shot strictly in black and white. I was (and am still) obsessed with how black and white emphasizes the texture and shadows of an image.

I have always been drawn to the richness of black and white photography. I believe its because of the clear contrasts; dark and light, black and white, the shadows and the brightness.

So pretty! The contrast can be the perfect texture. I love color but there is details that can be missed with a colorful picture. Love this ;)

I’ve been shooting for 35 years, I started out with B&W film (use color film for reference for oil paintings), and am a BIG Ansel Adams fan with his zone system, when it comes to photography anyone can shoot color photos, I think it takes a true artistic photographer to shoot in B&W, I also like the idea of being able to develop my own film and print it, that is where the magic comes in! <3
