Black & White - Ben Porter Wildlife Photography

Black and White

Whilst colour has become a quintessential element of photography, shooting black-and-white can be a rewarding and powerful medium. Colours, in all their dazzling array of shades, can be distracting. Black-and-white photography encourages us to strip down to the bare elements of a scene; it draws attention to aspects which aren't merely an artefact of our own visual system; to the shapes, the textures, the sizes, the patterns and the composition. If carefully considered, these aspects can result in striking and impactful depictions of our World. So next time it's a dull and gloomy day where colours seem drained from the landscape, set your camera to monochrome and get out there! You won't regret it
