Black & White Photography

 

The style of photography I choose is what you see in my portfolio.  A style that seems to have the same look.  One that you would hope to see in publications. There is several different styles that wedding photographers tend to lean towards which are the following four that I picked:

1) Light & Airy

2)Dark &/or dramatic 

3) A style that is mostly driven by filters

4) Heavy use of external lighting

There is many variations of these four that I picked but they tend to be the trend I see over social media. I believe that each and every session, client choice, and mood that fits the situation can choose which one I would like to tell the story with. Yes, I can photograph light & airy, if the lighting and situation lends to it.  I love dramatic and I love using natural lighting as much as possible. No way is the wrong way, it is personal preference.  And some might say pick one and stick to it.  Like I said, it all depends on the season, lighting, or even mood.

Black & white in my opinion goes well with almost any situation.  And depending on the lighting it can be dramatic or light & airy.  I love black & white simply because it is timeless.  While editing in black & white, you get more emphasis is the light and darks being isolated to have your eyes draw more into the subject, in this case, my engagement couple and not get lost in all the pre spring trees or grey skies.  Of course I give both options to my clients and as to social media to show the range that photography can provide for the look you would like to share.

I hope you like the black & white look.  It is timeless, artistic, and eye catching in so many ways.  

Thank you for taking the time to read my blog!
