With everything being so digitalised today, black and white pictures instantly send you to an era that has been long forgotten. Well, for me, till date nothing is more appealing and impactful than a black and white picture. You don’t need any photoshop or the most recent smartphone app ‘Instagram’. What is out there is captured in the frame as it is.
“When you photograph people in color, you photograph their clothes. But when you photograph people in Black and white, you photograph their souls!”
― Ted Grant
Back when I was in college studying photography, we were forced to start our module with B&W photography. Like young enthusiasts we cribbed (of course), but slowly fell in love with camera rolls so much that didn’t want to ever replace them with coloured ones in the next semester. Oh yes, we didn’t learn on digital SLRs, but instead bought rolls and fixed them in the sockets of our out-dated (as you would like to call now!) cameras. However, we loved those bulky cameras, and simply loved going click, click, click…
Below are few photographs that I randomly picked from my absolutely favourite portal – Google. These pictures don’t only attract with their frame setting, but has a message too in them.
P.S. You may come across few other exceptionally well-clicked ones, but hey, it’s my blog and this is my selection
Below is the picture that made me do this post… Ulyana Sergeenko photographed by StyleTao after Jean-Paul Gaultier Couture show. Honestly, this is one of the best clicks I’ve come across recently.
