Winter Portrait and a Return To Black and White

winter portrait

As spring is just around the corner, I thought I would show one of my favorite winter portraits while the snow is still on the ground. Reflecting my current preference for shooting, the image is in timeless black and white.

I find myself returning more and more to black and white, returning to the style of photography that made me fall in love with the medium. Perhaps this is how it often goes. We start out in photography for love, then twist what we do to meet our clients needs in order to make a living, but in the end we find we need to return to the style of shooting we love. It seems I am slowly completing that circle, black and white is coming to the forefront plus an interesting (non-commercial) project in its infancy. Stripping away all the fakeness of photoshopped images in their over-processed ways, and going back to the basics, photography is becoming interesting again.

    Black and white is not easy. I really appreciate how you add drama to your photos. Your photos reminded me of a quote by Coco Chanel: “Women think of all colours except the absence of colour. I have said that black has it all. White too. Their beauty is absolute. It is the perfect harmony.
