The Art of Black & White

Black and White editorial portraits can be strong, high contrast and powerful – or soft, gentle and subtle.

This editorial style of portraiture encompasses much more than just an image. 1// High contrast and sharp lines draw the attention to the subject. 2// A large scene is a great way to add historical value. 3// Accentuating curves and angles highlight the subject. 4// Shadows and highlights for more character. 5// Soft lighting for a dreamy glow. 6// Dramatic foreground and background add an interesting perspective. 7// Architecture is a beautiful way to bring out harsh lighting.
