Disney World Black and White Photography

Disney Art Print - Boardwalk in Black & White

***UPDATE*** Since writing this blog 5 years ago, I have now created enough Disney Black and White art that I can now put together a full gallery of my Black and White Disney Art! Check out that gallery here. And look for an upcoming blog soon!

I have started converting some of my Disney photos into Black & White images. It is a big change for me as since they are photos from Disney World, I usually tend to up the color and vibrancy of the photos and make them more vibrant looking. It is Walt Disney World after all and it doesn't have to be set in reality.

So, as I am working on changing some of my images to Black & White, I'm seeing that some of the images just do not cut it, but some others just scream out WOW! This one here of the Disney World Boardwalk area featuring its lighthouse was one of the WOW images.

Maybe it is because the Boardwalk area has a look designed to look like yesteryear, so it leads to a wonderful black & white image. The Yacht & Beach Club and Boardwalk resorts are all classic style. The retail area is also very old-fashioned looking (except for the ESPN Club). Maybe it is just the right kind of photo that leads to a beautiful black and white.

I have even made some of my Disney Fireworks photos into black & white, and again, this process doesn't work with all of them, but with this one here featuring Epcot's Illuminations is a big WOW!

I have also recently added some Cinderella's Castle Black and White Images.

What do you think? Should Disney World images look more dream-like, or does the Black & White work for you?
