Inspiring Black and White Fashion Photography

Inspiring Black and White Fashion Photography

As of late I’ve been incredibly inspired by black and white fashion photography. Fashion photography in and of itself is gorgeous, but the black and white aspect makes it so much more intriguing to me.

Fashion photography is photography devoted to showcasing clothing, jewelry, accessories, and style. Most commonly seen in advertising and magazines, fashion photography is one of the more exotic styles of photography often involving intense and dramatic scenes.

These past few months I’ve been gathering some of my favorites on Pinterest. However; I thought fashion photography in general was too broad a category to share and analyze, so I decided to collect my favorite black and white fashion photography.

In the images below I’ll give you some of my favorite black and white fashion photographs for your inspiration.

  1. I like the Uiliana by Arnaldo Medeiros photo. Her face expression and her pose is amazing. The Composition and the style is excellent.
    Her Face is beautiful.
    Overall the picture is gorgeous

  2. My favourite is Ave Styles Black and White Portraits because I love the use of light in this and the ‘caught in the moment’ feel of the image. It’s an engaging picture that paints and intimate picture with just black and white and the overblown whites in her hair make it look like she’s on fire and add to the ‘action’ feel of the image.

  4. My favorite is “Ave Styles Black and White Portraits” I love how deep and dark her facial expression and make up make her look like a bad girl but her curly hair and lipstick free lips make her also look classy. Photgraphs in black and white are always classy and they make me think of old times or bad (gangster) girls.

    • Yes for some of the photos. I can’t say they are all for sale, but a lot of the links to 500PX and other similar sites allow for purchase. Which photo specifically?
