Black and white photography is lately considered an art form. Some even argue that the most skilled photographers have learned to work in monochrome. According to Dracinc, a Harlem Black & White Photographer, it is a medium with a rich history that helps expand its craft to the next level.
For me, black-and-white photography has been a fundamental form of growth, enabling me to utilize the camera eyepiece better. My photography approach is simple, with a more aesthetic eye, allowing me to become a better photographer. As a New York black-and-white photographer who works as an advertising photographer, I look at and use many other black-and-white photography elements. The tonal quality helps my clients see the contrast, textures, shapes, forms, and light flow.
Prior to the advent of digital photography, the only way to produce black-and-white photographs was to use black-and-white film and a darkroom or laboratory. I used to experiment with Kodak Tri-X, Plus-X, and Ilford High-Speed infrared film in the darkroom.
However, with the advancement of technology, I have now discovered and improved ways to create the same black-and-white images on my computer as in the black-and-white lab. I find the beauty of black and white photography lies in the contrasts of light and dark, the interplay of shadows and highlights, which can sometimes evoke the sensation of colour.
