Black and White Portraits

January 06, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

In the last few years in my role of fine art photographer I have been working mostly in black and white. It was a decision brought on by a series I had started working on called The Meadow (you can find my fine art website here). The images simply said to me that color was not going to work. Since then I have continued to work in black and white almost exclusively in my fine art work.

On the portrait side of my business I always, of course, give my clients color images. But I also always choose a few to process in black and white and these usually end up being my favorites. There is just something about a child (or two) portrayed without color interfering with the emotion of the image. 

After Christmas I had the pleasure of doing a family session with two of my favorite boys. They were in very high spirits that day and we were struggling to get them both "calm" at the same time. Until I sat them on a deep windowsill that had beautiful light. Finally we got "the shot." It is very sweet in color but I think that b&w adds classic touch.
