Seven Tips to Make Stunning Black and White Portraits – Free Quick Guide

Black and white photography is so fulfilling in a manner that other photographic art forms can’t touch.

Perhaps that’s because black and white is the heart and soul of photography’s origins.

B&W portraiture is particularly mesmerizing as it cuts out any distracting elements from color. It focuses the viewer on details of the face and body through tone, lighting, contrast, and shadow.

Here is what we will cover in this guide to stunning black and white portraits.

  • Starting with a strong composition
  • Paying special attention to the lighting: direction, contrast, and texture
  • Focusing on the eyes and picking your depth of field (DOF) window carefully
  • Using shadows for drama
  • Using contrast for style through tonal isolation
  • Playing with shapes
  • Printing on fine art paper
