Black and White Photography is the champion genre of all photography types. Photography theme girls with Camera is very popular pose from decades and still used by recent popular and non popular photographers. This post features stunning iconic contemporary self portrait of girls with camera from some of the finest and best known celebrities and photographers. Not every shot will work in B&W, just like certain shots look more beautiful in monochrome than in color. Taking Black and white photos is an art and to perfect this you need to keep in mind following tips.
To get the best B&W photos, try planning for that difference and consider the following three tips:
1. Use light and shadow to your advantage
Light and shadow become more obvious when color is absent. Make sure you plan for that difference and turn it into a strength. For example, try creating a strong contrast between darkness and light. The darker the shadows are, the brighter your light will look.
2. Focus on texture and shape
Like light and shadow, texture and shape tend to be more important in B&W photos. You no longer have color to lead the viewer’s eye; you need interesting curves, curious shapes, and/or great texture instead.
3. Aim for clarity
Color photos have a wide palette of color and shading, while black and white photos look best when there’s a clear ‘black’ and ‘white’ to guide the viewer. Otherwise, you end up with a vague, muddy-looking gray image.
Below are some excellent examples of black and white photography selected from our Flickr group. Use these photos as inspiration for your own work, and post your best shots in the group so we can appreciate them!

Most of the general tips on how to compose or frame a good shot apply just as well to black and white photography as they do when shooting in color – however the main obvious difference is that you’re unable to use color to lead the eye into or around your shot. This means you need to train yourself to look at shapes, tones and textures in your frame as points of interest. Pay particularly attention to shadows and highlights which will become a feature of your shot.
