Black & White Photography

“There’s something really appealing about the simplicity of black-and-white images.”

-Joseph Gordon-Levitt


My teacher didn’t show up -.-

So, I decided to take this matter in my own hands *looks out at a distance*.

Coming to the point, I chose the topic ‘Black & White’ which also lingered a little around ‘Hands & Feet.’ More like ‘Hands & Shoes’, to be honest, I’m not really a big fan of taking pictures of feet. Keep your feet to your own self *flips her hair* No offense there.

I changed my camera’s setting to ‘Grainy Black and White’ and voila! Even the most common things that looked absolutely boring in normal settings; got a nice touch to them. 😀

To be honest, I really enjoyed this assignment! What I love about Black and White shots is that it involves contrast making the final result really attractive.

Glad I took the matter in my own hands *looks out at a distance… again*

Have a look;

Like how the lamp looks so shinny and has a really sharp black and white contrast.

Same with the picture below!

My phones’ torch comes in handy now n’ then. 😛

I really like this sculpture especially that expression in her eyes. ❤

Drawing is a really good remedy for emotional stress. Let it out on a paper.

And how couldn’t I add this one? I really like these pumps. *insert angelic smile here*

 I showed this to some people and every one of them perceived this picture differently!

  • One perceived it as a woman’s face.
  • Another perceived it as a road.

In reality; it’s a drawer with pencil sharpening all over it.

In free time…


  • Keep your ISO low or else you won’t obtain much contrast and thus, resulting in a less dramatic effect that every good Black n’ White picture has.

In the following picture of that colorful trunk I always find so attractive; I had my ISO at 6400 with aperture at 3.5 and shutter speed at 1/125 sec.

In the next picture of the same trunk at the same time by just changing the ISO to 3200; I got a different result which personally I like more than the other one. There’s more contrast and has a better dramatic effect to it.

Take out your camera and start experimenting with Black n’ White! 

Hope you enjoyed. Peace on ya’ll

Meet you in my next post! 🙂
