Black and White Portraits vs. Color Portraits

With Glamour Shots' various package, touch-up, and personalization options, you may feel overwhelmed when it comes down to choosing the right decision. Many people struggle to decide between black and white or colored portraits. Below are a few tips for choosing:

Black and White Photography
Black and white photography is a popular option for portraits when trying to maintain a more timeless quality. This is usually done with headshots, baby portraits, and engagement/couple photos. Black and white photos can almost guarantee a classic look. It also provides romance and drama to most shots.

Color Photography
It is best to use color photography when the composition of the portrait relies heavily on color. For example, if you get a family portrait done and everyone is wearing some form of red, you may want to keep the color in this portrait to keep the composition interesting.

The Best of Both Worlds
Glamour Shots also offers "colorized portraits," where a piece of the portrait retains its color while the rest is converted to black and white. By highlighting something as simple as a bouquet of flowers, a colorful dress or a bright bow a splash of color can be what makes your portrait unique.

Glamour Shots' professional and experienced staff is here to guide you every step of the way. Their staff will aid you in choosing the best package and retouching based on your wants and needs. You never have to worry about a Glamour Shots locations rip off due to the high level of professionalism exhibited in all locations.
