When the light is just right, go black and white
What is it about black and white imagery? Sometimes it works, sometimes it really doesn’t … but when it does, WOW! There is something about those grayscale tones that tell a story and evokes emotion that you just don’t get in colour.
There must be some kind of psychology behind this right? The feeling that you have captured a moment in time? Perhaps it’s the details that pop with the contrast of the shadows and bright white highlights? A sense of mystery and wonder? There is something classic and timeless about a good black and white. When they age, they age gracefully. But how do you edit them and do it well so that they will stand the test of time?
