The power of black and white photography is not to be taken lightly.

With no colour, no hue and no distractions, it is all about the lighting and composition. Shadows appear deeper, highlights pop, contrast is exemplified and drama is created. Done well, portrait images in black and white are natural, raw and can be powerfully emotive.
