The photographer and his black and white photography for a wedding

THE GREYSCALE AND THE PHOTOGRAPHER

I am, especially, a black and white photographer. It was with the black and white photography that I was born for it. It was when looking at black and white photos that I learn to love them and, after, with the learning of doing them. Many reasons push me to black and white photography, or better, to greyscale photography.

There, I see in a landscape in a tempest or sun shining day, in the face of someone that had the kindness to let me steal it or in a texture that only photographer can see, all the dimensionality that do the difference between the black and the white with all the grays in the middle that enchants me. Maybe, regardless of the content, that ability to look at all the different planes inside a black and white photo pushes me, more and more, to use it and deliver it to my clients.

However, as someone that chases chimeras, I never give up trying what I call, the black and white of the color. Trying to find in the color those elements of the greyscale is something that I did not stop trying. They are not everywhere, but they exist and when I see them, I do lose them. That is the obligation of the wedding photographer.
