From Seedy Hotel Shots to Upscale Loft Shoots, Monochrome is Hot

Though some of the world's most iconic photographs feature a strong blend of color contrasts, there is something to be said of the ability of a monochrome shoot to ratchet up the sex appeal in a photo series.

The monochrome shoots featured in this collection run the gamut from upscale loft editorials to seedy hotel bedroom shoots, featuring models (both male and female) who benefit from the ability of monochrome shoots to better highlight the defining features of the human body.

In addition to increasing the sensuality of photographs, the monochrome finish does a superb job of adding to the "special" nature of a series. Because most photographs are taken in color, monochrome photo series immediately draw interest for being uncommon and original. Sit back and enjoy this hot collection of black-and-white photoshoots.
