Black and White ProJECT
by: Marion Kit
There is an old quote that says, “If you want to shoot fashion, shoot in color, but if you want to shoot emotion, shoot in black and white.” Ask me who said it, I don't know. I just happen to read it online and the author of that article doesn't know who said it. . . then I grabbed my small camera and asked my friend if I can take random photos of her.
Why Black and White? Honest answer, I don't know... Black and White images just hit me more than colorful photos. I am not saying colored photos don't have emotions. Black and White Images have a special feel. It makes the inner beauty of the image more specifically-visible. It's direct, plain and simple.
The camera I used is not a professional camera and it can't handle low light situation well but I love this camera so much. My shutter value is 20, aperture 3.5, and ISO 1600 and the only light at the moment is the office fluorescent bulb and these shots were all handheld. Even though it's not that sharp, still the simplicity and the beauty of the subject is clear. The emotion of the photos is visible. . . I am grateful I achieved my goal, capturing emotions.
