The Power Of Black And White And Slow Motion

Some images work better in black and white. Not just because the lighting situation was that bad that there wasn’t much color anyway but because of the feel it can give to an image.

Sometimes black and white gives an instant nostalgia to the image. You can fish for some of my black and whites by clicking here to see what I mean.

In some cases I see it like putting slow motion to an image as it takes away every ballast and distraction.

For a better demonstration I embed a brilliantly made music video below that is taken in black and white with super slow motion. I think this makes the point clear if I haven’t already.


The Happy Birthday Photograph From Pedro 2

Yes, I have to admit that yesterday was my birthday. This is the reason that I’m a little bit behind with producing content. You will understand in an instant what distracted me from doing this.

I found this very adorable Happy Birthday Photo in my inbox. My friend Pedro took it when we were playing around with our cameras. He shot it with his 70-200mm 2.8, what is absolutely the lens I want to have as well.

Isn’t it nice. I knew that it would work best in black and white.
