Black and white portrait photography can convey a very different type of mood and focus than its color counterparts. While color may have a distracting effect for the eye in some photos, black and white strips each image down to its essentials.
Black and white, in its simplicity, is powerful and moving. The above portrait of sisters from Baltimore, Maryland, is all about the eyes and those hands and arms wrapped around each other. You are drawn in by their gaze and the embrace holds you there. This sweet and casual portrait, in black and white, is instantly a classic.
