Bring Out the features – In Black and White Photography

Black and white photos can be beautiful…

but at times, it can be a challenge to bring out the features in the shots without the use of color. Here are a few tips that you may find useful.

Make use of contrast

If your subject is dark, try to shot it against a lighter backdrop. Do the first if the subject is lighter.

Capture shadowing a light streaks

Featuring these elements can showcase depth and texture.

Use different types of black and white

Most photo editing software allows for a number of different levels and variations of black and white. Check out the different options rather than just setting for a default setting.

5 Alternatives to Using Photoshop

It is not often that a creative photographer takes a shot that upon review on his or her computer couldn’t benefit from some level of editing. And as most photography buffs know, Adobe Photoshop is the industry standard. And while it is a great tool, it can also be quite expensive and take up a lot of space on your PC or laptop. That being the case, I wanted to leave the photogs out there with a few alternative options.
