Why I absolutely LOVE photos in black/white!

We don't see the world in black and white, we see colors! Lots and lots of colors. And although I really appreciate the joyful feeling I get when I edit a photo that is just 'popping' with different colors, I must say that I absolutely LOVE my black and white edits.

Why, you say? Well, to me it's simple: Black/white photos bring out emotions in a different, and perhaps better, way than a color photo does; it makes the moment 'stand still'; it grasps you; it's got more clarity; it tells a story deeper and more dramatic than a color photo.

This edit also makes the picture seem timeless, which is a big part of my photography style.

Take a look at a couple of my b/w pics!

This girl is only 6 years old! 6!!! The look on her face, the breeze catching her hair lightly, mixed with the b/w edit makes her look SO grown up!

In deep thought. Those dramatic catchlights are not the same in color.

Pout snout! What do you feel this picture conveys?

Timeless...

Big dramatic eyes and lovely catchlights!
