Cats and Dogs in Monochrome

Black and white is considered one of the oldest types of photography. Many photographers still opt using monochrome film because of the beauty that it can produce. Let's take a look at some monochrome dog and cat photos after the break.

There are plenty of subjects that seem to look better in black and white. Black and white photography is commonly used in street photography, portraits, and panoramas. There are some who prefer to use black and white when taking photos of pets, too! This may be the best option if you are trying to capture the reaction or action of your pet. Just think about it. In black and white, the focus will be on the animal and not on the color of the surroundings, the background, or the other elements included in the photo. Why don’t you try this out and take photos of your pets? View the gallery below to see some cute cats and dogs from our community members.

Are you inspired yet? Visit the shop and grab some black and white films.
