Unlike color photographs, black and white photography has a special impact on the viewer’s eye and gives a more dramatic effect compared with similar colored photos. This many be the reason of why the black and white photography lasts till our recent days where there are colored images and digital media. While color photography uses different colors to show the image, black and white photography abstracts the image to use only one color. This gives the image a more dramatic effect especially when it depends on the light and shadows to take black and white photos.
Architecture and buildings photography is a real challenge to convert the walls into a truly inspired photography experiment where the viewer sees the buildings with a totally different angle than just solid items in the image. Choosing the right angle, light and shadows in these images are very important factors in taking a good architectural image. Architectural black and white photography gives the photo a more dramatic effect especially when it depends on using the light and shadows to show the details in the image.
Whilst most digital cameras support taking black and white photos, it is better to take the photo in color and convert it to black and white using your favorite image editing tools such as Photoshop. This gives you more ability to control the black and white in the image as well as more control over the levels, brightness and contrast. In this collection, you can find more than 45 black and white photographs of architecture and buildings from different angles and styles. I hope you like it and share your opinion about these images and which one you prefer the most.
