    I love black and white photography!

    I use a mobile app called "Dramatic". You might like the app too. It has various options of filter. Just take a good angle of your subject when taking photos and then use dramatic filters.

    I love it because it's different.

    Without color to give it pop, contrast and subject matter become even more important. I can't say that I love it more than color, but certainly some of my favorite photos are in black and white.

    The striking light contrasts are what its about

    for me. Its simple and powerful and accentuates shape and shadow....especially love the black and white expression of the human form.

    Some great stuff out there.

    Even on youtube! Ever seen Dark5 ? It's a youtube channel that's a bit.....Well, not to everybodys sensitivities! Some of the subject matter might be unsettling. But there's no doubting the quality of the some of the photography.
