I have a soft spot for black and white photography, it is expressive and minimalist in and very mood enhancing.
For the last six days my son was visiting with the youngest of our grandsons, so I have not been very active here, as there was someone wanting attention. An so much more cooking to do than normally.
I did get a chance to get some photographs taken, as I had a lovelu and cute boy to aim my camera to. After the first time, he said to me: Mummi, if these are not good we can take more tomorrow. (Mummi – grandma in Finnish)
and we did the light in my bedroom was better than the the ones I took in the living room. He is a good sport, and a real pro in front of the camera. After some shot he would say to me, let me see? and came to look at the shots on the camera. I am not going to post all of them the first time I took 90 frames and second time 125 frames. Most of them are OK.
“There is strong shadow where there is much light.” ~ Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
“There’s something strange and powerful about black-and-white imagery.”
Compare the color version versus the black and white one.
This last one was from the first time, we took in the evening and the light was low

Beautiful portrets !
Thanks Rudi, I had fun 🙂
He is so cute Ritva! If I were you, I’d be taking pictures of him all day! Well done, you got really great shots of your ‘model’ 😉.
I love taking photos, but he lives far away, and he is willing only when he wants to 🙂 if he’s not in the mood, forget it. and the older boys are not so willing to be photographed any more
Adorable, and the black and white evoke more emotion. Beautiful
Thanks, I agree with the emotion

Thank you !
Thanks, he is an easy topic to shoot
What a cutie. I like both the black and white and the color versions of the one photo. They both emphasize different things and give different feels.
Yes, they have a totally different feel in color. ThX! 🙂
