Color Portraits vs Black White Photography?
It is sometimes hard to choose whether a portrait should be left in color or be rendered in black & white.
How to decide tips:
- If your portrait or piece is going to contain color, then you may want to consider where you are going to hang it.
- Is it going to be the focal point of your room?
Black & White Photography?
- If you room is already colorful, then you simply cannot go wrong with opting for black & white photography.
- Black & White tends to be more timeless, for portraits.
Then a great deciding factor is what type of emotional response are you wanting to evoke, when someone sees your photograph or portrait?
Seeing the world in both….
As your professional photographer, you will find that I am not a stranger to seeing the advantage of both. As a professional creative, I have also a background as a hair colorist.
In 2001, I learned very quickly that I had to look at color vs black & white a bit differently, when it came to photography. My introduction into professional photography began when I had to spend time in a darkroom, developing my own film.
The topic of “developing film”, sounds a bit odd now, because digital has just about taken over. The real principle of photography involve more than simply owning a digital camera.
I love light! Photography is all about light; while hair color is all about color.
