Black and White Photography - Anthony Nicholas Gallo

  1. 1. Why Use Black and White 01 Photography?
  2. 2. Quality photographers still know when to start with black and white and when to start with color.
  3. 3. (Most) People don’t see the world in black and white.
  4. 4. 01 Only 0.003% of people see the world in black and white. Everyone else sees color all day long. So, mundane photographs in black and white can be much more interesting to look at.!
  5. 5. It can seem nostalgic
  6. 6. When we look at black and white photos we often see them as nostalgic because, in the past, it was the only technology available. This timeless look is used by many photographers. A black and white photo can have a surreal and dreamlike quality as well. 01
  7. 7. It’s dramatic
  8. 8. 01 With black and white, one can emphasize the drama. B&W images have strong contrast. A photographer can focus on a certain element in a photograph, for example a broken chair. ! ! Also, it helps the viewer of the image concentrate on the focal point of the photo; color can often distract from that objective.
  9. 9. Simplicity and a focus on the subject
  10. 10. There are subtle tones to B&W photography. This forces the viewer to focus on the subject. The viewer can pinpoint certain details in the composition, which may have been hard to see otherwise. Color photos are busy. B&W photos allows you to have less distractions from the subject.
  11. 11. Many photographers tend to think of them more 01 artistic than their more popular color photographer peers. Don’t simply convert all of your images to black and white simply because you want to be “deep”. Rather, think about why you might want to convert the photo into black and white.
  12. 12. THANK YOU!
