We love to celebrate relationships and life—in Black and White. Why? Color is great but there is something about black and white that commands attention. It allows the viewer to focus solely on the subject and not be distracted by color.
Some think black and white portraits are pretty easy to create. You shoot in color then you just click a button, right? Well, no. You don't just click a button. Much has to happen both before and after the portrait is created. We plan details from lighting and backdrops—which can be very different from what we use for color –to clothing and posing. What looks great in color doesn't always translate well into black and white. That's why we always offer a free pre-session consultation so that your portrait can truly be a piece of art that you will be proud to hang in your home.
To create a great black and white portrait you need to visualize what the color you are looking at will look like in black and white. If you don't know how to do this don't worry, we do! We know a little about creating black and white portraits—we've been doing that for a long time—back to the days of film. Our post processing isn't just clicking a button to remove the color from the image either—we go through several steps to create a stunning portrait you can be proud of. We offer many great products but the best for black and white are gallery wrapped canvases and our archival matted and framed prints.
During the month of June we are celebrating Black and White portraits at Tara Patty Photography. The session fee for relationship portraits or a black and white study is half off during June. So if you've been thinking about having a black and white portrait created, don't put it off. Now is a great time to have one made.
