Black on black

One of my most popular and most requested setups in the studio is the black on black. Black outfit on black backdrop.

Monochromatic styles were always a thing with me and I love how this setup brings the best in peoples’ faces. It’s like a tunnel of light and the skin is what reflects it the most. It’s one of my favorites, I can’t deny it…

Black on black gives shape and adds a contemporary mood to the scene. It looks great both in color and in black and white too. Here’s some black on black images that I picked from studio sessions.

Black on black is love at first sight.

Black is the darkest color, the result of the absence or complete absorption of visible light. It is an achromatic color, literally a color without hue, like white and gray.

Since the Middle Ages, black has been the symbolic color of solemnity and authority, and for this reason is still commonly worn by judges and magistrates.

Black was one of the first colors used by artists in neolithic cave paintings. In the 14th century, it was worn by royalty, clergy, judges and government officials in much of Europe. It became the color worn by English romantic poets, businessmen and statesmen in the 19th century, and a high fashion color in the 20th century. It is the color most commonly associated with elegance.
