25 Great Examples of Black & White Street Photography


I love street photography, it’s my favourite style of photography and it takes a brave photographer to go out and shoot people candidly but the rewards are definately worth it. I also think that black and white suit this style really well, so that will be the subject of today’s roundup post – as always thankyou to all the photographers who made their work available under a creative commons license on Flickr.

    Awesome blog you have here but I was curious about if you knew of any discussion boards that cover the same
    topics talked about in this article? I’d really like
    to be a part of group where I can get feed-back from other knowledgeable individuals that share
    the same interest. If you have any suggestions, please let me know.

    I rarely comment, however i did a few searching and wound
    up here 25 Great Examples of Black & White Street Photography.
    And I do have some questions for you if it’s allright. Is it
    only me or does it look as if like a few of the comments come
    across as if they are coming from brain dead people?

    😛 And, if you are posting on additional social sites, I
    would like to follow everything fresh you have to post.

    Could you make a list of every one of your public pages like your Facebook
    page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?
