When it comes to photography many purists prefer black and white for the medium’s simplistic aesthetic that isolates the visual subject. Traditionally the medium of black and white is preferred for portrait photography and is used to produce a more raw documentary style.
Color photography can capture the vivid details of surroundings and reflect the beauty of a landscape, skin tone, or subject’s eyes. In this post I am including two similar photographs; one in black and white and one color. Which do you prefer?
