    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.

    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.

    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 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...

    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.

    Why I Will Never Give Up Film

    I love black and white photography. I love the aesthetic of it, the dramatic quality to it, and the amazing effects of the play of shadow and light. That being said I find with modern digital cameras even high end DSLRs black and white pictures never look right. They look like...

    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.

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

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