There is an old quote that says, “If you want to shoot fashion, shoot in color, but if you want to shoot emotion, shoot in black and white.” Also a great photographer Robert Frank once said “Black and white are the colors of photography. There is something special about black and white imagery which has the ability to display both the inner beauty and turmoil which can be so easily hidden away by color photography. That’s not to say emotion and/or mood cannot be captured with a color photograph. Given the chance, however, when looking at two portraits side by side, nine times out of ten, the black and white portrait will hit you in a place where the color photograph just cannot reach. We shared on this blog why you should get more of your pictures in Black and White.


When you photograph people in color, you photograph their clothes. But when you photograph people in black and white, you photograph their souls!”
