Black and white photos are a tricky thing for many photographers. It’s easy to come across as an amateur photographer attempting to look “edgy”, or for your photos to look straight out of the 1920’s. But black and white photography does have a place in almost every photographer’s arsenal for a variety of reasons.

While colored images provide a greater range of shade, black and white photography has an essential subdued feeling that can work perfectly in a variety of situations, particularly in portraits. It also has a nostalgic feeling, which can create a feeling of memory or remembrance, and it can also create an incredible stark contrast between the solid blacks and the pure white.

With the advent of dSLRs, it’s most popular for photographers to take a photograph in color and later convert it to black and white, but often, the best results are when the subject is photographed in black and white, as it allows the photographer to see without having to do a digital conversion. The results, particularly in portraits, can be quite stunning:
