Beautiful black and white photography




If you've been following Smashing Magazine for a while, you know that almost every post in the Monday Inspiration series is quite colorful and eye-catching. This post is an exception. Compared to colorful designs where bold colors help the design to stand out, in black and white designs the ability to stand out depends only on your ability to communicate and not on your attractive visual presentation.
If you've been following Smashing Magazine for a while, you know that almost every post in the Monday Inspiration series is pretty colorful and eye-catching. This post is an exception. Compared to colorful designs where bold colors help the design stand out, in black and white designs the ability to stand out depends only on your ability to communicate and not on your attractive visual presentation.

In fact, the beautiful black and white photography does not attract with its play of colors. Here it is important to pay close attention to composition, lighting, perspective and the context in which you are filming. Therefore, before considering the photos presented below, please prepare a little patience and time. This post features some really great examples of beautiful black and white photography.

Photography Tips : Sometimes you’ll take photographs that don’t properly expose your subject—they are way too bright, or way too dark. This can be a combination of a few things: which areas of the scene your camera measured for exposure, and how different in brightness the light and dark areas are in your scene.

You can quickly fix these images by using the in-camera exposure compensation to make your subject look just right.

Disclaimer: This post is not supposed to show the best black and white photos from the best photographers in the world; Think of it as a modest attempt to inspire designers to experiment with black and white instead of using a variety of vibrant colors all the time. Hopefully everyone will find something interesting and unusual for themselves.
