Visions of "Black and White"

 Visions of "Black and White"

I am becoming a fan more and more of black and white photography. Depending on the image, a black and white photo can emphasize it so much more and bring more emotion to a photo than a image in color....
again..depending on the image.

I wanted to share some photos from a great photographer that I love that only shoots Black and Whites. Joel Tjintjelaar is a BW Fine Arts photographer from the Netherlands. I viewed his work in my Digital Photography class and fell in love. His work definitely urges me to shoot more in BW. His work is mostly landscape  but it is still so moving!
Check out some of his art that I love. His work is available for purchase. 
You can purchase any of the images here at :

“It’s up to you what you do with contrasts, light, shapes and lines to emphasize the essence, or what you see as the essence – no colors that will seduce the eye, only emotion that will capture the heart.”- Joel Tjintjelaar.
