Fashionably Black and White

Last year I had the opportunity to interview fashion photographer Michael Creagh for a profile in Digital Photo Pro magazine. Not only was Michael a great photographer, he was a real pleasure to speak with. The hook for our story was about how he shoots fashion photographs in black and white—not something you see all the time. He relies on digital cameras and a digital workflow to create his black and white look, but the effect is as classic as any darkroom technique could be. For those unfamiliar with his work, not only do I recommend reading that article from DPP, I'd also suggest you check out some of Michael's newer photographs. On his blog he's recently published a series of absolutely stunning and innovative fashion photographs involving a "Penn corner," a whole lot of mirrors and his amazing eye.
