Something about Black and White

I’m still working through my Cook Island images (30 days provides for a fair few photographs) but I’m always drawn to strong black and white pictures. Here, Peroni (apparently only his mother and I call him by that name) and Harry – both seasoned Vaka voyagers – helped me out with a photograph that works for me better in monotones than it does in colour.

    Beautiful photographs – I love the black and white, really effective. The Cook Islands look fantastic, perfect for a luxury honeymoon.ReplyCancel

      HI Kate, Thanks for visiting my Blog and the kind words. Yep, the Cooks is lovely (just risen to the top of my list for best relaxing option in the South Pacific).ReplyCancel

    Great composition. I think the black and white works well for bringing attention to the tattoos. Wonderful lighting and contrast. Would love to see other pictures of this subject/model displaying his tattoos.ReplyCancel

      Hi Linda, Thank you for your kind words and taking the time to comment. It is a pleasure to photograph tattoos of such beauty. I’d love to have more time to do it. Still, I’m grateful for the opportunity to include it in the work I do commercially. You live in a truly stunning part of the world.Kia manuia.ReplyCancel
