OCTOBER IN BLACK AND WHITE!!Modern black and white photography at it's best is art, and many photographers regard it as the purest form of photography.OCTOBER IN BLACK AND WHITE!! by BestDA
So why does black and white photography command such acclaim? One reason is that colour is a distraction. It takes attention away from the visual building blocks of a great photo texture, tonal contrast, shape, form and lighting. A photographer shooting in black and white has to learn how to use all these elements to create a memorable image.
So let's see some black and white photos that have been submitted to :iconbestda:

Noir City FeatureNoir (french for black) is a cinematic term used primarily to describe stylish Hollywood crime dramas, particularly those that emphasize cynical attitudes and sexual motivations. Hollywood's classical film noir period is generally regarded as extending from the early 1940s to the late 1950s. Film noir of this era is associated with a low key black-and-white visual style that has roots in German Expressionist cinematography.Noir City Feature by Art-of-the-Seraphim
The questions of what defines film noir and what sort of category it is provoke continuing debate. In our creative endeavors we explore the same characteristics that emphasize the melodramatic with the romanticized bleakness of visual styles associated with Noir influences.
This collections displays the aforementioned in an eclectic way.
