    I prefer black and white.

    Of course, there are some shots that require color simply because the shot is all about the impact of color. But, in my opinion, the artistry of black and white photography is the play of light and shadow, it's back to the basics. I have many books of the masters and I marvel...

    Wanna know how to ruin any regular picture?

    Just add a black & white filter, AKA "quality remover". See? Looks like ****. You can't even tell what color my dog is. Is she black and white? Is she orange and green? You could know this information, as the picture was taken with a modern, full-color camera. But na. You'll...

    Most of my photography is in color,

    because I'm not yet experienced with black and white, though I've shot a few rolls of B&W film. This is one of my best pictures, shot at a local park a couple years ago on B&W infrared film through an infrared filter.

    There is nothing like a good book to curl up

    with on a quiet afternoon, and there's nothing like a naughty book to read before bed.

    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.

    There is something about the effect of a black

    and white photo that just ... changes it. It carries its own mood, its own inspiration, and ya... there is just something....

    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.

    How many cameras are enough?

    n+1, where n is the number of cameras currently owned, until n = s-1, where s is the number of cameras at which your S.O. will leave you. Of course, if your S.O. is also a photographer, s can be a very large number!

    When I switch my color photos over to b/w,

    they sometimes look better. Give it that 40's classy look.
