Everyone knows it doesn't get better than classic Black & White. And it's deeper than nostalgia, simpler times and less color - it's the artistic soul of photography. Referencing one of our favorite (Ansel Adams) quotes, great Black & White photos aren't taken - they're made. Made where light and contrast, grit and form tell the story; where stone and sky, water and light transcend the material world.
JixiPix's Dramatic Black & White takes you there – and beyond. Easy-to-use, fully customizable presets serve up the classic Black & White looks of the past and the cutting-edge styles of the present. This app starts by leaving color in the rearview mirror, then enables you to make your photos through expert adjustments to contrast, light, texture and shape. Before your eyes, watch your photos transform into dramatic and timeless works of art.
We like to think of Dramatic Black & White as a jazzy, chemical-free, 21st Century darkroom in an app. Use it and your photos can be more than good or very good.
They can be Oh.My.Gosh. good.
We're pleased to say - it used to be much harder.
In photography's past, pressing the shutter button was always just the beginning. It was later, in the darkroom, where much of the magic happened. It took years of training, trial-and-error, and all sorts of chemical and physical processes for a fortunate few to finish 'making their photos' and, hopefully, bring their photographic visions to life. It was hard, and O.M.G. photos were rare - but it was the only way.
In today's digital world, most everyone is fortunate to have a camera to express their unique experiences and vision. However, along with film, we've lost the darkroom's completion. More photos are taken. Fewer are finished. Fewer are made. Their light is flat, their edges rough. Their subject stays in the shadows. Their sea flows into their sky…
We suggest you buck that trend.
