While clicking, one should never ignore the texture and the various lines that accompany it. A picture of an old woman or someone else will look far more beautiful when shot in black and white rather than in colour. Coloured pictures often subdue the fine lines and other facial characteristics, which are vital in case you are projecting some culture, different ethnicity and emotions. Always click to capture these very lines and raw emotions when taking a picture of a person.
One can master this art of photography only with proper practice and training. I have always wondered why pure colour less pictures often capture my interest and take me off to the subject which is clicked. Another trick is to show the subject in lesser lighting than putting all the focus on it. Lighting can play a vital part in giving your picture life.
Taking shots from different angles and postures often create magic when taking black and white pictures. Photographers also have the option to use side lighting which highlights the corners, shadows of the picture taken. Instead of just focusing on the main subject, the trick lies in bringing out the finer details which add more meaning to the photograph.
Clicking photos in black and white adds new dimensions to the already artfully captured pictures. One can exhibit true emotions like pain, suffering and laughter, when subjects are shot in B&W. Go ahead and take that one mesmerizing shot that will take everyone’s breath away!
