The color black and women’s portraits

I never realized how beautiful the color black is in photography and for women’s portraits. I mean yes, we women wear it when we want to feel sexy on those “little black dress” days. Or we use it as a way to slim and minimize the lady parts we don’t like. In real life and portraits, I try to get women out of their comfort zone and away from the color black. Wear OTHER colors. Bolder, beautiful, fun colors. I especially love to glam things up with feminine fabrics, sequins and sparkle. But for women’s portraits, I’ve found a new appreciation for the deep color as a backdrop to place my subjects against. Black adds drama and sophistication to portraits that I think today’s “contemporary” photographer’s don’t play with too often. I’ve grown to love shooting against the color black because simply, it emphasizes the contrast in an individual. The soft, the feminine and the sultry soul of everyone I put in front of me comes to life. When shooting against the color black, I feel like I get to see the real you.
