What makes mono so special?
Black & white photography has endured into the digital age and shows no signs of losing its appeal, despite the huge number of editing options now available. Mono images have a unique power to enthral the viewer and presenting your work in black & white adds a sense of gravitas to instantly raise it to the realm of fine art.
GRAPHIC COMPOSITION CREATES A PURITY OF VISION
Stripped of the distracting influence of colour, this image becomes a study in pure graphical composition. Lines, shapes and textures are emphasised, adding to the majesty of this stark landscape.
TONALITY UTILISES LIGHT & SHADE FOR IMPACT
With colour removed, it is the variation in tones that define this image. From the deep shadows that line the water edge, through the mid greys of the heathland and up to the highlights in the water and clouds this image is built on its range of tonality.
TIMELESS QUALITY OFFERS A UNIQUE PERSPECTIVE
This image could have been made last week or last century. Black & white photographs are not tied to any particular era and transcend the vagaries of fashion and changes in presentation styles.
