Black & White

Tips & Tricks

June 1, 2018

Week 22 of the 52-week photography 52-week project brings you black & white images.  BOY HOWDY… I like me some black and white. Don’t get me wrong not every image is suited for this style.  BUT….there are those images that black and white just brings out the emotion.

What do you think of Black & White images?

Black & White works for all types of subjects/models. Be it an animal, a high school senior, a family, and a landscape. Take a look at all the images below.  I’d love to hear which one(s) you connect with on an emotional level.


What’s your take on Black & White images?  Do you love them? Hate them? Or just don’t even think about it?

What if I said…

YOU could possibly be hired as a portrait model and no experience is needed? If you think you and/or your animals are interested head on over HERE to fill out our application to be put on our model call list. We are always looking for all different shapes, sizes, looks, and age groups.

Has this left you wanting more Black & White images? Well, good thing you’re in a blog circle.  Head here next —>  Tracy Allard of Penny Whistle Photography fetching pet and family portraits in Coppell and surrounding communities in Dallas – Fort Worth Texas

    I always lean towards color images but it’s hard to say for sure without seeing these compared to the color. The 2 pugs on the bed is adorable! 🙂

  2. Sam Adele says:

    I love colour too but some really work in black and white! But as Kim said when there’s a colour version too.. it’s even harder to know which to go for!
    Love that second dog!

  3. Elaine says:

    I do like black and white. I am always looking for just the right image or pose during a session that will lend itself well to b&w. Love the two pups at the end of the bed!

  4. Tim Evans says:

    I’ll be right back. I’m going into a cuteness coma over the two pugs.

    • I know right!?!?! These two were having a photo shoot in hope to being adopted. They were super sweet and very bonded together, but has some medical issues making them harder to adopt. They are now in a fantastic home being loved like they should.

  5. Susannah says:

    I love the first two dog images. And yes, there are some images that are just perfectly suited to black and white. I love black and white images (even though you wouldn’t know it from my blog post his week.)

  6. Lynda Mowat says:

    Love those pugs! The first image is gorgeous, but I also love the one of them at the end of the bed! Black and white certainly brings out more emotion.

  7. Darlene says:

    These are beautiful! Love the little girl with the flowers 🙂 Nicely done!

  8. Tracy Allard says:

    That image of those pugs on the bed. WINNER! Oh my, that is just perfect! I always love your images, they have so much depth and feeling. You do a wonderful job of conveying emotion.
