What is photography but an exact representation of a person or scenery on film? If you are photography enthusiast, then this statement will annoy you and even if you are not, you may not agree with this statement in any case. The fact is photography is an art and it is definitely more than focusing and capturing images on reel though that too is part of it. Take the art of black and white photography, which is anything but the vanilla black and white we think it is. In fact, if anybody can look good in black and white, you can be sure that they have an amazing facial structure as this medium tends to throw into relief the lines and features of our facial contours more starkly than color photography. Just look at these fabulous examples of black and white photography to know the truth behind what we are saying. When you look at portraits of celebrities in black and white, you will realize the reasons why they look so awesome when captured on screen – they have the facial bones to look awesome on camera.

They say the camera can be pretty cruel on your looks as it tends to make everything more stark and pronounced than ever. Which is why even the prettiest of faces can end up looking dull and not so pretty on camera and more so when in the black and white photographs. The fact is that not only do celebrities have to look thin (the camera tends to add weight on you) and beautiful, but they also have to have awesome facial bones, lovely eyes (the two features that are supposed to make you look good on camera) but also good play of lights and shadows on their face.
