Black and white photography is a true art form. There are times it looks amazing, but with the wrong background, contrast, colors etc it can look horrible.
Digital makes it easier. Everything is shot in color in the first place and then converted to black and white using a number of different methods. But even with all of the ways to convert it and adjust it, there are times it just doesn’t look good. Strong contrast in the scene seems to be one of the primary keys to a good black and white photo.
This shot is from the fashion shoot I did out on Venice Beach where we also shot this fashion video. We used Charles McKay for the model and I highly recommend him. Very easy to work with.
