Back to Black and White – Part 3

Presenting the humans of monochrome or the not quite humans of monochrome 😉  Everyone has their own favorite technique for portraits; color, monochrome, high key, etc.  I believe that with each and every image there exists the potential for any technique to make “the” shot but sometimes you don’t discover what works best until viewing your image during editing; experimenting one way or the other.

In the end it’s your personal (or the clients) preference  in what you want the image to say.  In the beginning a black and white image was just that – black and white.  Today with all of the new cameras, editing programs, actions and plug-ins you can create an image that showcases your unique vision.

Here are some of my Pinterest links with tips on black and white photography.
