Black and white photos

Mystery, mystique and innuendo, play of light and shadow – these are the main keys to understanding what black and white wedding photography is.

Despite my passion for bright and rich colors, the sun and the heat, sometimes it just so happens that it is only black and white image that is able to convey the mood of the moment.

In black-and-white photos the texture, the contrast and light accents come forward. Without being distracted by bright colors, the viewer focuses his/her attention entirely on what is shown in the picture, uses imagination, immerses into the atmosphere and feels the moment caught in the photographs.

Virtually in every photo-shoot there are such images when the color does not matter, when one wants to eliminate all that is unnecessary and wants a viewer to concentrate on the most important, the most significant things in the picture, to give him/her the opportunity to feel, to add in her/his head the missing elements to the picture for the puzzle to become a single, holistic image.

To me black-and-white photographs are like reading a fascinating and exciting book, when no special effects of a movie cannot be compared with luxurious pictures drawn by your own imagination.
