Lately, I have gone to scrapping mostly black and white photos.
For me there is something classic and timeless about black and white pictures! Also, it makes it easy to coordinate with whatever paper line/collection you want to use!!
I still do scrap color photos, just not as much.
What is your preference?
|Posted: 4/2/2013 9:06:09 AM|I wasn't sure if you meant to post this in the scrapbooking section or if you meant for it to go here, but I like both. I do love the feel of B/w very much, but as a photographer I find lots of people like color better.. I think I like b/w better
I think a photography class should be a requirement in all educational programs because it makes you see the world rather than just look at it.

It depends on the subject and the feeling I am trying to convey.
Personally, I take photos for the individual shot, so I'm not really worried about colour co-ordinating them for a scrap book. I'll go with whatever seems to suit that shot best.

I love color photos and most of what I shoot is in color. But sometimes black and white can be much more effective. I took a close up shot of my dog, who happens to be a black and white dog anyway...lol So I turned the shot into black and white and had it blown up to 20 x 30. I framed it with a simple, black frame. Everybody that sees it loves the photo. I think that it has a lot to do with the fact that there no distracting colors and people can focus on the expression on her face. So I believe that it depends on the photo and the impression that you are trying to create.

I don't scrap, but in photography I think it depends on the "mood" of the image. I love color for many things, but I've found that images that tend to be high emotion are better in b&w. Sometimes you don't need the "clutter" of color. Birth photography would be an example.

It all depends on my mood! LOL
Lately, I've been obsessed with rich colors in my photos. But, I do love the classic look of a BW photo.
