This is one of Melanie’s favourite genres. This is accomplished both in-camera and by post-processing. She loves low key photography and applies this to her black and white images to evoke emotion and chase the light. This quotation by Ted Grant, she finds, sums up the true meaning and feeling behind black and white photography, he may refer to people here, but it is definitely not limited to.
“When you photograph people in colour, you photograph their clothes…
When you photograph people in black and white you photograph their souls! ” – Ted Grant
