The basic tenet of Black and White photography is to be able to communicate rather than to impress with a visual presentation of colors. Black and white photography seems to tame and mute the moment it captures on film, presenting a serene aesthetic. It also shows a photographer’s mastery of composition, lighting and perspective, as these are the most important elements to capture a great black and white photo. The following images are some of the many great shots taken in black and white. Be inspired with the textures, intensity and story of each photograph.
