256 tones as opposed to millions of colors - black and white photography is unsurpassed in its elegance and simplicity. There are no distractions, only the game of limited tones and textures. The eternal battle between light and shadow creating pleasing composition and shapes. To be able to create a great black and white shot, you really have to nail the composition, and make sure that you convert your tones properly by adjusting color levels of the photo in order to create contrast between tones. Here is a delicate portrait in black and white of lovely Rita - an artist from Hong Kong. We had lots of fun running and shooting, and she was absolutely amazing, so I thought I would share one of the shots with you guys!
