The forgiveness of black and white

March 20, 2011

Black and white pictures really let you focus on the emotion of a picture.  Either on someone’s face, or in their movements.

I find there are often pictures I take that I LOVE because of the feeling they give me – happiness, being carefree… but unfortunately, are often blurry.  This may be because I was trying to capture a fast moving toddler or it was dark and I refused to use my flash…among other things.

I have found, that making these slightly blurry pictures black and white can not only save the picture, but let you really focus on the emotion that drew you to the image in the first place.  Everything else kind of melts away and all you see or feel is that emotion.

So before you trash a blurry picture, try it in black and white – it may find new life!
