Fine Art Collections « Shades of blacks and whites »

Black and white photography is a suitable technique for many nature scenes. It requires a particular frame of mind. A black and white photograph should be prepared and planned from the framing to the post-processing on a computer. However, black and white photography is also a separate discipline within photography which enables a photographer to express emotions that he cannot convey through color photographs.

Our fine art collections Shades of black and white.

The choice of black and white

A black and white photograph immediately displays the point of interest. The viewer’s gaze is guided by geometric shapes, lines, and the contrast between light and dark. These elements will enable the viewer to read the message that the photographer wants to convey. A simpler way of expressing this idea is to say that a black and white photograph can go straight to the point to deliver a key message.

Black and white photography is primarily creative expression because it does not show a true picture of reality, which is in color. A black and white photo has one purpose: to convey the message that the photographer wants to send clearly, without frills.

Black and white is the basic language of a photographer. The elements that he can use to deliver his message are shapes, textures, lines, and perspectives. He returns to the basics of photography. In black and white photography, the photographer reveals raw emotions.

Black and white is a magical creative technique because it is timeless. it is not possible to give an exact date. Black and white is timeless.

For us, black and white became a way to create photographs that will live on through the years and survive changing fashions.

Amar and Isabelle Guillen. Professional Photographers of nature.

We are fascinated and passionate about the beauties of nature. We love to see the landscapes and observe wild animals whether on land or underwater. We have chosen to become professional photographers to share the emotions we feel when we observe nature whether it be on land or underwater. Our goal is to create art with our photographs. We always try to transform the banal into a contemplative and artistic interpretation.

We are wildlife professional photographers, landscape professional photographers and underwater professional photographers. We also strive to document nature with a focus on conservation and education.

We make art prints from our artistic photographs. These art prints are available on our website. We make exhibitions to show all the beauties and the incredible richness of nature that surrounds us.

We also love to share our love for the beauties of nature with other photographers. To communicate our know-how and to exchange our techniques and our points of view, we organize wildlife photography workshops, underwater photography workshops and landscape photography workshops. We gather together people who have the same passion as us for the beautiful photographs taken in nature.
