Black and white photography is the oldest style of photography. Every photograph that you can think of, has the potential to be black and white.
It depends on your imagination and a few key skills. Every area of photography, from landscape to portraiture, have their own set of requirements when it comes to B&W photography. Shooting in black and white forces a photographer to amp up their game. Without being able to fall back on bright colors, the photos have to be compelling in different ways.
This photo challenge is well worth it. Just like black and white portraits capture the soul of a person, great black and white pictures show the essence of their subject. Here are a few things you should especially pay attention to when shooting B&W pictures:
These aspects are always important in photography, but for black & white photos the stakes are higher.
