Digital photography allows for lots of creativity --and high school seniors are always looking for new and different ways to express themselves -- but you can't beat a great black and white portrait.  Photographers get lazy and use black and white conversions to cover up for poor lighting or composition but the truth is, a great black and white portrait only comes from a great image. You can't make a great portraits out of a lousy one just by turning it black and white. 

What do you look for in a great black and white photograph?  Contrast.  And sometimes grain. Mood. And always you look for emotion.  Just like you can't see the light without the dark, you can't feel the image without some real depth. And that doesn't happen by accident.

We may have learned the old school way, but we love black and white imagry and we love contrast. Bring us your ideas and we'll make them last forever. That's our super power.
