Recently I noticed a few of my friends on social media hustling down on this black & white photography challenge. It was funny and interesting to see the results! Most of them simply add a filter to their pictures but we do understand there is a bit more conceptual thinking that goes into this style of photography. Let's take a look at the work of Jason Peterson (@jasonmpeterson) who is a Chicago-based photographer that takes black & white photography to a whole different level. Take a look. Behind the lens is the work of Jason Peterson, the Chief Creative Officer at Havas Chicago. Care to check out his legendary Instagram account, one of the few people I know that has 1M followers and who's not a celebrity per se.

I come to appreciate those who only take Black & White Photography. In my opinion, it's a hard style of photography to tackle especially when it comes to the colour, contrast and creative direction. Even though there's a play with the shadows but it's still pretty interesting. I took the liberty of featuring the work of Bimal Tailor and his series entitled Switch House, Tate Modern Extension. This is a photo series by Bimal Tailor is a creative photographer based in London, UK. We have featured his work before on ABDZ. You should definitely follow his Instagram.

Black and White Photography always have been a hard photography style to accomplish for me, I am a great fan! Eventually I'll get around to it, for now let's just look at this beautiful series by Guilherme Afonso who shared his perspective of Huacachina. To be honest, I had to looked it up where it was and according to Wikipedia. It's a desert oasis and tiny village just west of the city of Ica in southwestern Peru, pretty stunning lines indeed! Behind the photo series, we are featuring the work from Guilherme Afonso who is a photographer from Porto, Portugal. Focusing also his work in photojournalism, you can follow his work on Behance.

There are some awesome scenes in Italy in the latest season of 'Master of None'. Here in Brazil, there are tons of Italian immigrants and we get to see a lot of their culture, so Italy has always been a country Brazilians really enjoy. Most definitely it is one of those countries I will definitely visit when I get the chance. I'll probably visit vineyards, eat pasta and ride a scooter. Yeah, yeah, all the clichê stuff, but that's awesome nonetheless. Check out some awesome black and white pictures of beautiful Italia! Don't forget to click the pictures to visit more of each photographers' portfolios! Cheers. ;)
Photography has become one of my favorite hobbies. I am far from a pro, much more like a beginner/enthusiast. One of my favorite subjects is buildings and the geometric forms of big cities, with skyscrapers, textures and vanishing points. I am always looking for references and inspiration on sites like 500px, Behance and Flickr. There is where I found the work of Michael-Bies, a photographer from Landau Palatinate, Germany. He has some incredible black and white photos of urban and architecture subjects. I selected some of my favorites. Look at the simplicity of the composition and the effect created by the textures.

As I am trying to be a better photographer, the more I realized how hard it is to go on a path of taking only Black & White pictures. I mean you’re disclosing yourself from so many colours and maybe it is easy to give it a try. But to me, it’s quite a challenge! We are taking a closer look at the work of Bimal Tailor who is a photographer based in London, UK. With what he called: Moody London, we are taken on a little ride around the streets of beautiful London through its tall buildings, reflections, landmarks and very cool perspectives.

It is holiday in the US this Monday and besides resting a bit and trying to learn new things, like a new language (italian this time). I took some time to work on the final details of the new Abduzeedo site. Hopefully it will go live in the next couple of days but I want to share a bit more of the references I had during the process. Today I will feature 2 web design projects and a poster that illustrate the look and feel I am trying to achieve. If you have references on this style, share that with me via the comments, I'd love to see more examples on this look and feel.
Posters are always a great outlet for designers giving us a canvas with fixed dimensions to explore different ideas, styles and forms. The purpose, of course ,is communication. Fabian Fohrer explores some really cool ideas on a series of black and white posters for a college project. I love how simple and bold some of them are, especially with the usage of just black and white. This is a selection of b/w posters arose the last year. Some are the result of university projects, some are personal works. All KD—Lounge posters (4/7/8/9/12) use our Moderat typeface. Fabian Fohrer is a graphic design student based in Constance, Germany, with a passion for branding, graphic design and typography. For more information check out http://www.fabianfohrer.com/
The new Sin City movie is scheduled to be released in a couple of weeks and from the latest trailer it is looking fantastic. I love the black and white, high contrast style and I am playing with some concepts inspired by that for a new ABDZ poster. So for this post I will share some images with that sort of noir style.
This photography series is done by British photographer Rupert Vandervell. It highlights the unique visual characteristics of the human form against the urban background. For more from Rupert Vandervell visit rupertvandervell.co.uk/. Captured against the ever-changing backdrop of the modern city, these photographs highlight the presence of life and the unique visual characteristics of the human form against the urban background.
I really like moody photographs. It's great to see photographers capturing amazing images like these featured here. Rainy days are pretty special... it's fuel for growth in every way. In nature, rain only brings growth, rebirth and that feel that things will be kept in their natural order. Sometimes, it may cause even destruction, but most of the time, rain simply gives us amazing days to get cozy. I want you to feel this with this post. Not the depression rain might bring to some, but coziness a time to think about life. It's great. And of course that these were taken by some really talented artists/photographers. For more of their art, please, visit each portfolio by clicking the images. I hope you show them some love. Enjoy!

I love black and white photography and specially shots on the street, where people are not expecting and most of the time don't even know they have been captured in that very moment. The feelings that the streets bring into a photography are so strong and priceless.

Why go too crazy when you can keep it simple and elegant with black & white. A great business card design can be in any form of design or color, but sometimes all you need is to keep it simple in order for guaranteed success, and here are some really good samples of how you can get it done right. The main thing about business card is to represent yourself and/or your work in that little piece of paper (if you chose to go with paper with all the other options we have today), and a lot of people find it difficult to do that. One thing for sure is that you can't go wrong if you make it simple, no matter what is your working area, a black and white business card will fit for anyone. It's the forces of the combination of the two main colors that give a great contrast and such an appeal onto the design. Combine this with other classic elements and you have a great business card. So, how can you express yourself on your business card if it's so simple on black and white? That's when the extra elements will get in play, in these samples if you see each business card on this selection you will notice that most of them have an extra element to increment the black and white design, it can be a special typo, a different design, some drawings, anything that will help the card to represent yourself better. Worse case scenario as you can see in some of these is that the card will be too simple but yet elegant. Enjoy!
