How to Capture the Best Portraits in Photography

Some photographers prefer black and white as it brings out all the hard lines and the tends to be “punchier”, especially for street photography and reportage that show mood and tell real stories. I personally love black and white, as it is a gradation of monochrome.  My suggestion is shoot in color and convert in post to black and white thereafter. In studio, photographers will often use a plain baby blue backdrop for black and white, as it tends to work nicely for effect, white is very cold and used only for specific looks. When capturing family portraiture, black and white is not a popular choice. Most family and baby pictures are shot in color, same as fashion, where the colors play a large role.
