One of my biggest inspirations in photography is Richard Avedon. His movement, emotion and expression in the photos he took for many of the famous fashion magazines like Vogue is always beautiful and flawless. Part of what inspires me so much with Avedon’s photos is that they are all simple, yet profound, and I think part of that is because he shoots in mainly black and white. I have always loved a really well done black and white photograph. These fashion portraits of BYU-Idaho students in black and white are just a little bit of what I try to aspire to be like Richard Avedon. While I shot and processed these photos afterwards I have learned a lot about the lighting and how it effects the outcome of the black and whites. I love these fashion black and whites!
