Why Black and White Photography Is More Popular Than Color. We live in an era where everyone has a smartphone capable of taking a seemingly infinite amount of photos instantly. They are usually in color and we view them just as they were taken. Often the light is bad and the photographs are not flattering. What we see is a quick representation of a moment in time, to add to the thousands of other photographs that we already have stored on our phone. In color photography, the colors of the subject’s clothing can sometimes clash with the background or other elements in the image, and is a distraction from the subject. Black and white photography eliminates this issue, allowing for a more pleasing and subject focussed result.
At Portrait Club we specialize in Black and White portraits for the wall. It seems that no matter what technological progress we make, black and white photography is here to stay. While it was created by accident out of the technical limits of a certain time, it has proven to be an important art form all its own. People are still drawn to the simplicity and narrative power of black and white. With so many options, people are still compelled to reach for this classic look. The nostalgia classic feel around black and white photography is very powerful. When we take black and white photographs, we aren’t just capturing an image, we are creating a work of art. Black and white photography has a timeless and classic quality that can create a sense of elegance and sophistication. It can give portraits a timeless and vintage feel, making them less likely to look dated as fashion trends change.
Black and white photographs appear serene and timeless, and limits the elements you can focus on. The most crucial element of that is light, and nothing quite captures light in as pure a way as black and white photography. Combine the Portrait Club’s professional photographers ability to work with studio lighting, we are able to give our clients cherished images that will live into the future.
These are just a few examples of the simplicity and beauty of black and white images.
