emotion, depth, simplicity
"Black and White portraits evoke emotion. With colour removed the viewer is left with an artistic interpretation of the image"
The Classic style is always in black and white. Clothing and backgrounds are kept dark so the utmost focus is kept on the subject. Tones, shapes, textures, light play, shadows, and depth of field all become more apparent when the element of color is removed. This is the most dramatic and striking style of portrait photography.
