I love Black and White photography. It has a simplicity. A defined contrast. Real impact. I love the element of nostalgia that black and white photos possess, the look of a bygone era. But I also love how the effect can be used to create a real contemporary photograph.
I've posted lots of black and white photographs from my family archives on this blog before. Photographs of my parents in their youth, portraits of me as a baby and photos of my dear old grandparents. However I've decided to use this week's prompt from Tara to show a modern interpretation of black and white photography.
For this week's entry to The Gallery I have chosen to use an image that my daughter Ella created. She is really keen on photography and enjoys playing around with photos using editing software. I love her creativity and think she really works the b & w look!! It goes to show that even with all the capabilities of modern technology, sometimes the old fashioned simplicity of black and white can create something really impressive.
