Black & White Female Portrait Showcase
I think it is safe to say that most photographers will agree that black and white portraits are just as powerful, if not more powerful than color portraits. This post is a showcase of amazing black and white female portraits.
In my honest opinion, black and white portraits do a much better job at showing a women’s personality. The lack of color does amazing things to show us the true emotion of the subject. Female portraits aren’t about having a pretty face covered in makeup on the other side of a camera, but instead about understanding what’s going on inside the other person and reflecting it in the photograph.
This post doesn’t discuss the technique behind capturing a female portrait effectively (and mind you, there are different approaches for taking portrait shots of men and women which is why only one is being shown here).
Aneta Kowalczyk started her career as a photographer after having worked as model for several years. No doubt that her experiences as a model helped her develop such a creative eye for beauty portraits.
Zhang Jingna is a freelance photographer based out of Singapore. She has worked hard to develop a photographic style that is uniquely her own. This is no easy task to accomplish in the photography community, but one I feel confident in saying she has achieved.
J. Borodina is an outstanding female photographer. She currently resides in Moscow, Russia.
Lara Jade has been one of my favorite photographers for some time now. I started following her early on and have watched her skill and style develop over the years. I am constantly amazed by what she comes up with. She has done an excellent job at creating her own signature style.
Scott Smallin is beyond amazing. He has done a ton of work for the popular site Suicide Girls, which we can’t show on Tututorial9. I admire his work so much he will be photographing my wedding! The images below don’t do his work justice.
