Simplicity, black & white…. monochrome. Way back when, all photos were shot in black and white. Today, many photographers are still using it due to the effects it adds to a photograph. The depth of the grays, blacks and whites. There are even colors you don’t really see. I know personally speaking some photographs to me, look better in black and white.
The Moluccan Cockatoo is a peach colored bird. Meet Delilah a 26+ yr old Moluccan Cockatoo, who is what is known as a ‘plucker”, she pulls her feathers. There is nothing medically wrong, she just plucks. I found the photographs I took of her in color did not speak to me, yet a monochrome picture spoke volumes. I hope you like the expression of her deep eyes. She wasn’t sure if she should eat the banana, which is a favorite of her’s or look at me.
The Black & White Gallery has some samples. I hope you stroll through and see why monochrome photographs are still very popular today.
