The beauty of Black & white beach photos

Black and white photography has always been admired, with good reason. From the iconic images of models in the 1920s to the snow-swept landscapes captured by Ansel Adams, Black and white images have never lost their timeless elegance.

Black and white images capture light, shadows, contrast, and emotion in a way that enhances the mood of the subject. During the process of creating a Black and white image, the clothing becomes less relevant and the mood remains the main element in the portrait.

With the simple click of a shutter, one can now capture an image in both Black and white or color. (and many other ways as well) However, the impact of a Black and white image distinctively displays nostalgic emotions and the spirit of a subject, in a way that a color image can camouflage such details.

Black and white beach photography offers a feeling of simplicity. Portraits with one or two subjects display emotion and soul while a large group session absorbs the feeling enriched by the tone that a Black and white image offers.

This Summer, change your color palette and add the tone of a Black and white beach photo session to your Outer Banks family vacation. For more information and to schedule an appointment:

The sun has finally found its way out of the winter clouds. The summer photographic journey begins again, so I pick up my cameras and head out to photograph families along the beaches of the Outer Banks from Ocracoke North Carolina to Corolla North Carolina.
