When You Take The Colour Away

I don’t really do a lot of black and white work but I sure do appreciate the genre when I see it and of course, I have dabbled over the years and even managed to like a few of them.

“Color is everything, black and white is more.” – Dominic Rouse

I don’t know why I don’t convert more of my photos into black and white, but it just seems as though I lean more towards the colours in the world. Having said that though, I’ve probably got a lot of photos hiding on my hard drive that would suit the conversion very well.

Maybe it’s something I should delve into a bit more? I have friends who do almost all of their work in black and white exclusively, and for the most part, it always speaks very loudly to me.

When you take the colour away, your left with the soul of the photo. Colours are lovely, but for the most part, I think they can be a big distraction.
