Black and White Photography

Posted on Oct 26, 2011 in Uncategorized

I have always enjoyed black and white photography;  the simplicity of it and the beauty of it.  Good black and white photography can really highlight emotion and mood better than almost any other type of photography.  The lack of color forces you to really look at the composition, shadows and subject and it can really focus the eye on what you want.  I took a black and white photo that I liked of the Pier at Scripps (one of my favorite places to photograph) as you know.  The pier looks very moody and calm at sunset – almost peaceful even.
