Black & White Love

I want to let you in on a little secret... I struggle with my black and white portraits.Well, maybe you already knew that ;] It is something that irritates me regularly. When I take a photo, I usually have in mind exactly the finished product I want to walk away with. Nothing is more frustrating for an artist to have a picture in your head that you can't get out, and that's what black and white photography is to me. I look at my subject and see this image all dramatic in black and white and gray... and I just can't get my camera or my editing software to make it come to life.

This has been my biggest investment this year, my black and white skill. I'm still not happy, not completely, but I wanted to share where I am right now :]
