Black & White Photo Collection: A Colorful Approach

“I think it’s because it was an emotional story, and emotions come through much stronger in black and white. Colour is distracting in a way, it pleases the eye but it doesn’t necessarily reach the heart.” ― Kim Hunter

From the moment I fell in love with photography, monochromatic photos have always captured my heart. It is not about the color, it is about the emotion and the overall impact that the photo brings. It is as if I am seeing more colors in black and white photographs than in the colored ones.

  5. What a great collection of black and white photographs. I also think color is distracting at times and feel black and white photographs have depth and more emotion.

    1. Yes I agree! 🙂 thanks for dropping by.. 🙂

  6. The less color you see the more emotion you perceive. I think, I would agree at this. Things should not be that colorful that it hurts the eyes. Sometimes, it just needs to be an artistic touch of emotion. Great photos!

    1. Thanks andi!! 🙂

  7. I know what you mean! I’ve always thought the the removal of colors takes away the distraction from the story that a photo is trying to convey. It is much more intense and the impact much stronger than looking at the colored ones.

    and would make you focus more on the story a photo is trying to convey. Have said that I love all of the photos you posted here especially the one of Apo Whang-Od. I just love that woman’s smile.

    1. Marge! 🙂 Thank you so much for browsing and dropping by! 🙂 I highly appreciate it. 🙂

  8. Naks naman! True na true! 🙂 I feel you, kuya Mike! There’s so much more when there’s just black and white. I see it as more dramatic. Well, kelan na ulit tayo magta-travel ne? Sayang ang travel funds! Hehehe 🙂

    You have really interesting images in here. I am also a photographer and just take in Black and white as well! It is much more beautiful and artistic in my way to see and think. 🙂

    1. Yes! we have the same perspective about that artistic view of black and white pictures! 🙂

  16. So beautiful. I always find black and white pictures very charming. Specially as a collection. I have a collection of black and white pictures (deliberately converted to black and white actually) of my family, hanging in my dining space. And I have got countless appreciations for that

  17. Very creative, you found beauty in the most unexpected things and places. Keep it up and looking forward to see more.

  18. It’s amazing how black and white photos give so much depth and story!

    1. Yes I agree! 🙂

  19. Wow. You really have a good eye. I am not a fan of black-and-white photos because I thought it loses the impact compared to colored. But your were still able to capture the ’emotion’ of the object/subject.

    1. Thank you Carmen.. 🙂 B&W photos have always a big part of my photography journey. 🙂

  20. You are absolutely right, Black and White photos have a quality that is not there in colour photographs. They have an old world charm and seem so close to reality which gives them an endearing quality. They have an aura of mystery which not many colour photographs can match.

  21. These really are a truly some beautiful photographs. Certainly, when stripped of colour, the details of a picture become so much more apparent, something I thought particularly evident in the shot of the lighthouse and the elderly lady. A great post and thoroughly enjoyed

  22. Amazing gallery. I’m a fan of B&W Photography and reminds me a lot of my photography class in uni back in the day. Keep it up! You’re doing a great job!
