Black and White (mostly)
I love black and white portraits. There is something timelessly classic about the over all look and feel of black and white. It always seems like a throw back though, when you think of all those years people only had black and white TVs – maybe they’d think we were nuts for going back to white and black after we finally had beautiful rich color to display! Or, maybe not. Like I said, it’s so timeless. I tried really hard to do a black and white experiment shoot with the kids the other day. Mostly, I was able to do it, but a few shots of color made it in. I can’t help myself!! 🙂 I was also trying to put my new Silver Efex Pro plugin to work in Aperture. It’s a fantastic little app, just like all of Nik’s plugins.
We were privileged to get to know Tara Morris, a Penticton, BC photographer who shoots exclusively in black and white. Her work is amazing and very inspirational. I highly recommend you check out her stuff.
