Sometimes a picture can look way better without its vivid colors. Black and White photography brings out a different kind of vibe and mood in a picture. This concept is hard to explain but very easy to see. If you were to compare the original picture to a black & white version, the results would be stunning. Now of course some pictures are better kept in color, for examples a field of colorful flowers.

With all the simple technology tools, photographers can change a colorful picture into a black and white concept with one press of a button. Although the editing part might sound super easy, taking the perfect photo is a challenge. Anybody can pick up a camera and take a picture, but it takes a skillfull photographer to take a magnificent photograph and use composition, exposure, and aperture as an advantage.

For inspirational purposes we have gathered some incredible examples of black and white photography. The following images come from some of the most skilled photographers around. All the photographs are linked to their original owner, thus giving you the ability to check out more of their work. Enjoy!
