Black and White


It is absolutely true that I do not see the world in black and white. 

Neither by inclination, nor by training. Not philosophically, nor artistically. 


I see the world in vibrant colors; in fact, I go out of my way to look for the vibrant colors. 

But...

In photography, the most basic of basics is black and white. 


And shooting in black and white is very different than shooting in color. (Although one can shoot in color and then process to black and white, that only works if the composition and light is right for black and white.) 

Black and white has a totally different feel than color photography. A feel that I love, actually, despite my real life technicolor vividness. 


So: a mission. Shoot more in black and white. Either in camera or through post-processing. Find what works, and what doesn't, for me.


Mmmm....
