Black and white landscapes are very artistic, exciting, and extraordinary works. The use of black and white spectra in scenes of nature changes human vision to its hidden beauties.
There are only specific cameras in the world that only take B&W photos, which are very expensive.
My camera, like what others have, only takes color photos. I edited this photo in Photoshop and used an infrared filter. This type of filter works well in a few pictures and is not very common.
But I was delighted with the function of the infrared filter in this photo.
The thing that makes this picture beautiful is the mountains’ peaks hidden in the fog. And the trees that shine by the river because of the infrared filter.
I took a few pictures in different poses in this scene, but this one had the best composition.
This place is located next to the road that goes to Lake Marmishoo. The area that the picture was taken there, in the local language, is called Targavar. ( To watch more black and white images visit the Amazing black and white photos article. )
Advantages of B&W in Scenery Photography
Some color scenery photos look better with b&w. One reason could be that in black and white, the shapes and lines are more predominant and clearer.
When we lose color in an image, we get a little trouble conveying our meaning to the viewers. But this equation is not always one-sided.
Sometimes removing color is to our advantage. In sunset photography, especially when the sun is not hidden behind the clouds, one of the problems is the color of the sun.
This situation is especially true when it is still a few minutes to sunset. In these cases, the sun is seen as a large white circle in a color photo, which is not very attractive.
But in B&W, the problem is completely solved because white is one side of the color spectrum in this style. So it would not be unnatural for a large sun to be white in the sky.
In B&W, after removing the color from our tone, the difference between different parts of the image is used to attract the viewer’s attention. This is another advantage to draw the viewer’s attention to various parts of the picture.
I mean using Tonal Contrast. Another advantage is that the texture is much better seen in B&W than in colored ones. So it depends on the type of photo you choose to make it black and white.
In general, remember that whenever you bother with insufficient lighting in scenery photography, you will achieve better results by converting it to B&W.
Colors make scenery photography beautiful. In b&w, after removing the color, the shapes, lines, and tonal contrast become clearer.
The b&w photo shows a different effect from the color version, a hidden beauty!
Some photos may not be suitable for the color version due to the type of exposure and color spectrum but shine in b&w style.
