I love b/w photography. The dynamic contrasts really can make a picture pop. The key is lighting it well, so it doesn’t become flat and boring.
The truth is Actors don’t use b/w headshot very much these days. Commercial headshot have to be color.
But, is there a time when the b/w is okay? I say yes! Once in a while the right b/w for a theatrical headshot could get you noticed in a sea of color. The drama of a b/w headshot can serve the Theatrical market. They still use them for Opera! It is the standard for British actors. I will set up a b/w for any shot from a Theatrical headshot shoot that a client is in love with. It’s worth having one in your “back pocket” should the need arise.
Definitely a great thing to have on your website!
