25+ Examples of Beautiful Black and White Landscape Photography

Black and white landscape photography starts before the shot is even taken. Listed below are some quick tips on what to look for to ensure the perfect black and white landscape.

  • As with any landscape, foreground detail makes for a good composition. Compose the shot so there is something of interest in the foreground to help set the scene and lead the viewers eye all the way through the image.
  • Light is one of the most important aspects of black and white landscapes. You need to ensure there are different area’s of brightness. For example, look for well defined shadows, contrasted with bright highlights (yet not overexposed).
  • Clouds are great, but make sure they aren’t covering the sun. After all, sunlight is what makes the different area’s of brightness mentioned above.
  • Learn to see landscapes as a series of tones instead of colors. The more you practise black and white photography, the easier this will become. For example, it doesn’t take long to learn that a cloudless blue sky will result in a boring one toned grey area. What is perfect for a colored photograph, can often have a negative impact on a black and white landscape.
