15 Amazing Black & White Wildlife Images That Will Leave You Spellbound

The charm of black and white photography is not limited to a specific genre. Many genres of photography – portraits, landscapes, and street photography, to name a few – offer great avenues to create excellent black and white images. The interpretive and storytelling quality of black and white photography can also work wonderfully well with wildlife images.

The biggest challenge in black and white photography lies in knowing which scene would work well in black and white. Post-processing plays an equally important role where you need to take control of the tone and contrast when converting a photo to black and white.

This post is a collection of wildlife photographs that utilize black and white as a medium to portray the frame captured by the camera. If you'd like to learn how to create B&W photos that stand out, take a look at Kent DuFault's guide on creating better B&W photos.
