Black and White Portraiture Abbi Dehmey

5 More Tips for Making Better Black and White Portraits -Andrew S. Gibson

1.) Tonal Contrast- ignore colors and focus on the difference in light and dark areas
2.) Texture- contrast things such as smooth skin with a textured surface

3.) Composition- Use a simple background and natural lighting to emphasize the model

4.) Increase contrast for stronger portrait

5.) Emotion- since the composition is simple, the model's emotion should tell the story
