It wasn't until I saw the movie Sunset Blvd. as a kid that I began to really appreciate the medium of black and white photography and filmography. In the black and white world, lighting is everything. A shadow can dominate a scene or a photo in a completely different manner than in the full color world.
Elements like eyes, lips and other facial features carry completely different meanings in the blacks and grays of the B&W spectrum.
Here are some great photos that I found but just could not bring myself to leave them in a folder. Enjoy.
|I love the clouds and water.|
|At times, this is the journey that I feel that I'm on.|
|Abe, early years.|
|Look at the eyes.|
|This is a neat little touch-up job.|
|If Picasso worked with film.|
|I've been in that garage.|
|Lighting, lighting, lighting.|
|Eyes, lips... luscious.|
|The complexity of this shot is intense.|
|I've met this guy. I think.|
|The King with a smile.|
|My favorite shot. Step back and look at it.|
|There is an entire story in those eyes.|
|Hey, hey, my, my, rock-n-roll will never die.|
I hope you enjoyed these photos. There will be more. This is not my last Black and White Photography Collection. It's just Vol. 1.
