BW Photo Highlights of 2022

BW Photo Highlights of 2022

For the first time in quite a few years, I’m posting some of my favorite black and white photo highlights of the past 12 months. Every year I do a Photo Highlights blog post, but those are usually just color photos. This isn’t because I’m not a fan of b/w photography. In fact, like many photographers, I’m a huge fan of black and white.

Back in the days of film most photography classes used b/w to teach students the fundamentals of composition, exposure, and processing. Most of my favorite photographers were and still are those who specialize in b/w.  However, as my career in photography progressed I gradually drifted away from the medium. The main reason for this is due to the fact that nearly every client I worked with is only interested in color images. So yes, like many other things in life it’s a financial thing.

But I still love black and white photography and will always create new images in the medium. So, without further ado, here are ten of my favorite b/w images from 2022. Feel free to comment and vote for your favorites! And of course, all of these images are available as beautiful limited-edition prints!

  1. Being so used to your color work, this gallery was a surprise, and the work you’re showing here is really wonderful, Alan! You brought out wonderful tones combined with your subtle and mature style and it’s impossible to pick a favorite, they’re all great. The landscape-scale abstract/minimalism of Cape Disappointment is gorgeous, the untouched snow and elegant lines in “Table Mountain North Cascades” are so peaceful, and “Moon over Table Mountain” seems to pay homage to Ansel Adams? 🙂 Congratulations, and I hope you’ll do more black & whites in the future.

    1. Thanks Alex, I’m glad you enjoy my BW photos! Cape Disappointment is one of my favorites, I love minimal BW with a touch of abstract.
