For those of you that have been following me, this post won’t be a surprise. I periodically post different captures from my black and white photography gallery with the reasons I think they stand out more using the black and white motif.
We’ll start with “The Rock”. I love this shot and showing it this way allows the detail of the rock itself to be highlighted. The scene is unique unto itself with this huge rock structure, but it also emphasizes the white surf of the waves coming ashore.
Next is “Admiralty Head Lighthouse 2” which is located north of Seattle, Washington. By showing this in black and white, the architectural details stand out as the center of focus. The subtle lines along the lower level of the first and second floor become more obvious along with the same type of lines along the top of the tower and second floor. The window framing actually pops because it contrasts with the white stucco of the building itself, as does the roof and top of the lighthouse itself.
“The Unfolding Of Petals” is a perfect example of detail that “pops” out with the absence of color. The color photograph of this rose is stunning and no getting away from the brilliance of the color. Having said that, I did this in black and white because the amount of detail that pops with the petals is intense, from the actual shaping of the petals to the veining that shows on each petal.
