Creative black & white with a colour touch is today´s post. It is a post-processing technique where you turn most of the photo into a black and white, but you leave out some parts that remains coloured..
You do this in photo editing software´s such as Photoshop or similar. Creative black and white photography is usually very expressive, but sometimes keeping a part in colour makes it totally different.
The technique emphasizes parts of the photo and hence draws more attention to the subject. Films such as Schindler’s List and Sin City have made use of the technique.
A common application for selective colour is portraiture, to keep the eyes and sometimes the lips in colour against an otherwise black-and-white photograph. Small regions of colour in an otherwise monochrome image immediately draw the viewer’s eye.
Landscape photography is another common application for this technique. Colourful leaves in an otherwise drab scene can breathe life into a photo. Of course the technique can be applied to any genre, but portraits and landscapes are the usual beneficiaries.
