We all love beach photos in bright hues of blue and green, but who says the beach looks bland in black and white? See beach life in monochrome through LIFE photographer Wallace Levison’s interesting photos from the 1880’s.
The beach without a doubt looks best in bright hues of precious slide films, but have you ever tried taking beach photos in monochrome? It’s not that difficult to conclude that it will result to a bland-looking seaside, but LIFE photographer Wallace Levison was able to take advantage of the dramatic effect of black and white films for his beach snapshots. While certainly not as bright and vividly colored as ours today, Levison’s beach photos during the 1880’s certainly look classy and unique. Most likely aware of the limitations of black and white photography, Levison captured people frolicking and relaxing by the seashore instead of sceneries and seascapes. The result? Elegant beach photos with interesting stories to tell.
If you are up for a challenge, bring your film cameras to the beach and use Levison’s photos as your guide for some interesting monochromatic beach photos!
