Black and white

Studio Friday subject this week: Black and white!

I just love black and white photos. When I was younger I used to buy a b/w film every once in while and take special pictures of trees and people. Portraits is still my favourit photo today. To save the familiar faces of friends and family is a great way to preserve the past and save for the future. I think I would love to be a photografer full time, if I could choose only to take pictures of puppys, cats and children. They always make great photos!

Last weekend I put together a mini Photo Studio with black (and also white) fabric as background. There I took about 250 (!) pictures of Flixen (P’s sisters son). Some I photoshoped into black and white, like this one:

I loved taking photos with a black velvet background, it kind of makes the baby float. So cool.

Here is another one I took this week:
Ludde the puppy
This puppy is the office dog, he makes my morning by waiving his tail and biting me shoe laces with lots of enthusiasm. His name is Ludde.

Still lots of snow:

Hand b/w
Close up of baby hand. Guess what? This one was precided with about 20 photos of moving waving blurry hands. I like this one though.

  13. Both the portraits and the landscapes are so dynamic. Sometimes color detracts from our ability to detect movement.
