B&W Portraits

Potter B&W

I have always been blown away by super gritty black and white portraits. After viewing hundreds of pictures on JPG and other sites, I have learned a ton about light and taking better B&W photos. I am not there yet, but I am excited and a little proud of how far I have come since joining JPG. These are some of my favorite B&Ws that I have taken and I hope to one day get that perfect shot.
