Black and White Horse Art
Since the inception of photography, black and white images have been an integral part of all forms. Images without color were the only option back then, regardless of whether you were shooting on glass or metal plates or film. Now, you can capture the world with amazing devices that offer vivid colors. But black and white photography isn’t going away and likely never will.
Great black and white photography is a special attraction, it is timeless. Black and white images can be captivating, compelling, stunning, moody, and are certainly memorable.
It is most certainly amazing to see the world in color, but it can sometimes be overwhelming.
A rainbow shirt, for example, in a color portrait might draw the eye but it is almost unnoticeable when converted to black and white. Additionally, it can remove emphasis from contrast, texture and lighting. Particularly, distractions in color simply disappear when they are converted to black or white.
Black and White Horse photos are more engaging, allowing the viewer to settle in and really study the horse. Black and White somehow allows the viewer to notice all the details of the mane, the eye and especially the muscle structure. Not being distracted by color and too much action and activity presents a sense of calmness and connection.
Our lives are both precious and fleeting. It is important to preserve the memories that are meaningful and bring joy. What happens when we are raised in a society that is dominated by photo-taking but not printing? We become more disconnected than what we already are.
These moments are brought back to our lives through photo printing. They are tangible and easy to find. When printed, they can be shared and when your photos are displayed in your home, they give your children a sense of belonging and security.
Canvas Printing: The Benefits
Canvas prints are timeless and classic, making them an ideal choice for any decor style. They also make great photo gifts offering:
• Style Versatility
• There are many sizes to choose from
• Printing on Canvas is a great way to display any photo
In a world that has gone digital and with the potential to lose use of the device they’re stored on, your favorite images should be displayed where you can see them every day without fail! Even though our lives are increasingly online, most of our important and immediate experiences occur in physical space.
This gives printed photos so much value. I present my black and white horse photos mostly with just head shots. I want my horse photo to renew the viewer, to remind them of their connection to their horse, or to horses in general. It is my goal that you feel connected through these photographs and that you discover the sense of spirit that awaits you in your own life.
