Black and white photography

Black and white photography

Aaaaand it’s been 11 days since the last post..sorry about that!

But today I want to talk about photography. More specifically black and white photography.

When cameras were first made (well film cameras), all pictures were black and white and it gives off a very different feeling than coloured ones.

Recently I’ve been editing a lot of photos to make them look darker and older. I really really REALLY like the effect of old, used photos.

After a while, I found a good editing software for Mac (it does exist for windows as well) which was actually free! I’m passionate about photography, yes, but not to the point where I can afford paying monthly for photoshop or Lightroom, it’s really just not worth it.

It’s called RawTherapee. It took a while to get a hang of but when you use it for a while, it’s really good. Obviously, it’s not like the expensive software but for its price (which, again, is free), it’s good!

The second way I edit the photos is with VSCO. It’s an amazing app and has a lot of good filters. The black and white ones are nice as well. Although I find that the contrast on photos is not as high with the filters, if this bothers you, just change the contrast.

Here are my latest black and white photos:

I hope you enjoyed this post! Tell me in the comments what you think about black and white photos!

XOXO, Rosie <3

    Black and white photography really is beautiful! I want to start doing it more throughout the year:) and VSCO definitely has to be one of my favourite apps, it makes editing so much easier!
