Creative Black and White Photography: Advanced Camera and Darkroom Techniques
Bernhard J. Suess
Among all photographers—professional and amateur-black and white accounts for less than 10 percent of the photos that are taken. Why then is it still so popular among serious photographers? There are a number of reasons, any one of which you might have discovered for yourself.
When I began teaching, I told the students on the first day of class, "You are going to learn how to see in black and white. Soon black and white will seem more real than color." A number of the students discounted my remarks, but by the end of the course one of the students made a confession. "I didn't believe you," he said, "but now I find myself seeing things in black and white. I never shot black and white before this course. Now I don’t want to shoot color anymore."
That's the way many of us feel about black and white. It's like an old friend; it's comfortable. After a while we become familiar with its nuances. Color adds too many distractions. Black and white is more basic and gets right to the heart of the subject.
Hi guys, please don't forget to seed. :) Thank you!
