Hello, dear ShuGar Loves! I hope you had a beautiful Father’s Day weekend. Mr. ShuGar and I spent a lovely time with our family and meeting up with friends. Everything is so much more fun with little Camdie with us.

Some of you may remember that back in the day pre-Camden I blogged about my photography journey and how I was taking a class to try to learn how to take proper photos. Well, since our little ShuGar Boy has been here, I haven’t really had the time to practice f stops, shutter speed, and ISOs, but it doesn’t mean I still don’t dream about it. In fact, I sometimes wonder how I would ever manage to take a real photo of Camden in manual mode when he is so figgidity and hard to get to stay still for that special “say cheese” moment. For now, the automatic setting on my Android will beyond suffice.

Nevertheless, I still very much love fantasizing about photography and the beauty of capturing that one glorious, unique photo using the right camera settings. Here are some black and white photos I’ve been mesmerized by. Black and white photography adds a certain je ne sais quoi to any photo, wouldn’t you agree?

Do any of these black and white pictures strike your fancy? What comes to mind when you see black and white photography?

    Oh yes, I love B&W photography, too. These are gorgeous! I am dreaming right now of the art I want to hang in our new apartment (that we haven’t found yet), so this post is some nice inspiration :)

    There’s magic in B&W pictures! Half of our wedding pictures were taken with a black-and-white film and they are gorgeous ;) I adore picture #2, the light is stunning.

      I couldn’t agree more! I wish we would have had some more b & w wedding pictures. They have a certain nostalgia and feel classic to me. Yes, that lightening is mesmerizing!

    B/W photography/art will always be my first love. There is something so classy in a photographic that can portray emotions just through a simple array of hues. I love the third picture where the light passes through those beautiful openings. :)

      Exactly! It’s classy and tells a unique story. You really don’t need much to tell the story either. Goes to show you that simple many times is better. That picture is intriguing because it makes you want to see what’s beyond the light.

    These are great black & whites. I especially love the first and third, followed by the last and second. Black & whites captivates me in a way that color cannot. I really want to know more photography, even developing negatives. There’s just something about it all, even in this digital world I also enjoy. :)

      Thanks so much! Me too! It’s captivating and I try to use this setting for certain occasions because it gives a unique perspective. I wish I had more time to learn more photography. It is so difficult to take a great picture so it really makes you appreciate a beautiful photograph. Maybe one day we can both learn properly!
