Shadows are the soul of a black and white print

_DSF3247-5

Llyn Dinas Snowdonia October 2015 

Photography is not about photography.

Black and white photography is not about taking pretty colour out.

Black and white photography is principally about directional lighting and the shadows created.

Shadows are the soul of a black and white print.

    Ansel Adams in one of his many astute observations about photography noted that it’s not so much the subject matter itself that makes the photo as much as how it interacts with light.

    I love the detail! I really like black and white photos, because they force you look at other aspects of the photo, like texture, light, and motion. Color is a very powerful tool, but it can be distracting.
