Portraits in B&W by Blank Wall Gallery
Portraits in B&W
Submit your photos for free
Deadline: Thursday June 1, 2017
Photographers and viewers have always loved Black and White portraits. This is because these portraits have different aesthetics. The lack of color functions as a filter that removes everything unnecessary, helping the viewer focus on specific elements without any distraction. In Black and White portraits, emotions come to surface more easily so they can be viewed and recognized, as the facial expression is the one that dominates and tells us a different story every time. We can see more things about the subject of the photograph and this is very intriguing.
We would like to see your Black and White portraits and exhibit them in our gallery.
Choices Announced: Tuesday June 6, 2017
