Black and white photography has a sense of nostalgia to it. It reminds us of what photography used to be like, and how far it has become.
I think this message is perfect for my book, as it adds a mythical element to the subject, whilst also achieving strong dynamic contrast.
Before taking my shots, I want to think about the following to achieve a successful outcome:
- Focus on contrast
- Focus on texture
- Use photo filters
- Try long exposure
