As simple as black and white- {Life's Tidbits}

Some photographers are getting away from black and white pictures, they think its to old fashion. You see a lot of bright bold colors everywhere. Now dont get me wrong. I love bright bold colors myself and tend to edit this way a lot especially when there are colorful flowers, bright green grass, or a beautiful orange glow from a sunset. But every once in awhile, while your editing pictures, you come to a picture that makes you stop. Its a picture in which the couple (or family, or child) forgets your there, they forget that their every move is being captured. They forget where they are and get lost in a moment. Something thats real, something thats well... life. And when I come across a picture like this, sometimes nothing else will do it justice. It needs the simplicity of black and white. Because really, thats what makes life wonderful, those simple moments where everything else just melts away and you can be happy. And these moments, are why I love being a photographer. ~Sara


  1. When I started reading this I knew it didn't come from Britney :) It would be interesting to have her blog on this picture & compare. I loved your words to this shot though, Sara. It made me think of that saying, Oh how does it go?? It's not the breath in life but the moments that take your breath away?? No, that's not it but you know what I'm talking about Right?!

  2. I agree 100% with every word! I love the picture too!
