Black and White Photography.
Black and White. My biggest passion is without doubt landscape, and Icelandic horses. I sometimes mix my photography with other things like abandoned houses which have a special kind of beauty to them, they have a story, many of them long lost. I find that black and white gives me the most pleasure and I feel really good when I have shot an image I know will be great in black and white.
Although I do also take some color photos but Black and White gives me the freedom I need in many photos to express what I see without color interrupting and it is giving me more graphical viewpoints in a way that color can’t. The image becomes more equal to me. I would say that 80% of the tim.
I choose Black and White over color simply because I find they work better as a B&W image. There is a lot of color in black and white photography.
My favorite Black and White photographers are Ansel Adamshttp://www.anseladams.com The master of B&W photography. Michael Kennahttp://www.michaelkenna.com and Ragnar Axelssonhttp://www.rax.is They have all had deep influence in my approach to photography .
