Black and white is one of the most popular genres for portraiture. Many gravitate to it because of the unique and honest perspective it can bring to your photos. A lack of color opens up a new world where light, expressions, and stories are intensified. With B&W portrait photography, you can show feelings without the distraction of color.
What I love most about a black and white portrait is its soulfulness. If you compared two versions of the same portrait – the original and its B&W copy – you would feel more drawn to the emotions in the second one.
