Photography and Thoughts
I admit I hardly ever think a black-and-white photograph is better than a colour photograph. Losing the colour loses depth and layers. Black-and-white may sometimes be more flattering for faces, but for nature shots I normally think natural colours are best.
So I set out to try and challenge that view by trying some of my photos in greyscale.
Review: The shadow on the brick wall
I can’t decide which version i prefer… Is the black-and-white version too flat? Or is the colour a distraction? By removing the brick colour does that encourage the viewer to look more at the shadow pattern?
Review: The artistic trees
I think i prefer the black-and-white version! It makes it look more timeless. I’m not sure the colour adds much. Does the colour in fact weaken the picture? Is the black-and-white version stronger?
Your friendly feedback would be much appreciated.
