recently i’ve been inspired by several variations of b/w photography i’ve seen online. for some reason, taking a complex subject and making it as simplistic as whites/grays/blacks allows the subject to be so much more pronounced. at least so goes my thinking. and when you have a stunning subject it’s not too difficult to produce stunning images.
off course, sepia ages the picture allowing it to become more than just an imagine, but a crisp memory as well.
as much as i love these images, my heart continues to be drawn to the color version. why? i think for the simple fact that it is so full of LIFE. love how playing hard produces such beautiful rosy cheeks.
so i’ve decided as much as i love b/w photography i’m much more apt to enjoy my life in living color.
