Tip of the Day: Blondes do have more fun... in B&W

Actually the title should read, "You'll have more fun with blondes in B&W".

But whatever.

For the record, I'm a sucker for brunettes, but blondes photograph fantastically in B&W especially if they have highlights. For the following reasons:

1) Light color hair provides great fill on the darker portions of the face = more even exposure

2) Blonde hair (particularly with highlights) photographs with natural contrast. See the following examples:


See how the highlights pop?

Save a kitten, shoot a blonde :)
