Here is just something magical about black and white photography, isn’t there? The timeless beauty of the photos, the emotion that they bring, the different lighting contrasts that come to life. For the longest time, black and white film photography was the only medium available in photography. While color photography has also been around for a long time (the first color photo was taken in 1861), it was not until the 1960s when color truly started to dominate the world, and it has been that way ever since. Some people might think that black and white photos are antiquated and have no use in the modern world. Sure, shooting in color is great, but a black and white photo can bring a new perspective and aesthetic to your photos that can’t be expressed through color.
The purpose of the More Art Please Portfolio contest is to identify trends in contemporary photography and highlight artists whose work deserves greater recognition. A photography portfolio can focus on a single subject. It can be a collection of photographs taken with a certain type of camera, an idea and its evolution, the representation of a concept, of one person or a group of people, only black & white or sepia photos, a special event, etc. The winning portfolio will be published in More Art Please Magazine and Portfolio page.
We wish to see and exhibit the most spectacular photos. The themes are open to any kind of interpretation, but there will be accepted works that will offer an original view of the theme, free from conventions and lifestyles. We put an accent on creativeness, vision and composition. We are looking for beauty, non-conformism and classic, but most of all we are looking for emotions We want to see many works from many different parts of the world, we want to see how or what our themes means in your country, culture and of course in your eyes.
