When I first stared to take photographs I took all of them in Black and White. For years that was my favourite technique – hight contrast, perhaps a bit too dramatic monochrome shots. The photography club I belonged to provided the film in unlimited supply so that was an added insensitive to stay with the format.
With arrival of digital photography colour was it and only recently I have started to use black and white conversions again. This is a perfect solution for street photographs or situations where a bit more dramatic effect is desired.
Here is a man and his boat . Simple black and white photo, which actually doesn’t work as a colour capture at all.
