“When you photograph people in color, you photograph their clothes.
But when you photograph people in black and white, you photograph their souls!”
Black and White portraits are an incredible way to create family heirlooms. I photograph black and white photos in a “studio” setting in Monmouth County NJ. I have studied Black and White Photography right here in New Jersey. It is truly my passion. For me it’s real human emotion being able to photograph what the person is feeling at that moment in time. It doesn’t matter if your child’s hair isn’t perfect or if they just lost their first tooth – in black and white everything is perfect RAW emotion!
Black and White Photography is more than just a style, it’s the mark of a true photo. When you strip the color out of a photograph, you let the image speak for itself. You reveal the true subject, and it is beautiful. As humans, we see the world in color, always looking with wide eyes. When I take Black and White photos I feel as if I am brought back in time. A time where there were fewer distractions, and everything was clear-cut. In these photo’s, the black and white version allows us to study the person closely. Taking out the color allows us to see the laughter in their eyes. We can clearly see the innocence in the face’s , without distractions of any kind. Black and White Photography is timeless and will create a family heirloom that will last forever.
