Life in black and white

Published September 2nd, 2012

I saw an interesting video recently, where artists, photographers and other creative types explained why they prefer working in black and white.

I like b/w too. For me it's a way of removing distractions from an image and making the viewer focus on what's really important in the image.

Whether it's street photography or architectural photography, black and white treatment - when applied carefully - can make an image stand out. More than oversaturated colours.

Do you agree?
