The eternal question; black and white or color.
My thought is that if the color doesn’t do anything for the shot then I go black and white. I always try both, and contrary to many non-photogaphers opinion, black and white doesn’t really improve a bad photo. A bad shot is always a bad shot. Right?
You might know that I prefer black and white over color, but this is something that I have to consider for every photo I take. Therefore, I have decided to start “thinking color” when I look for shots in the future. I will still continue to develop my black and white photography for the better, with Streets in color mixed into it.
Here’s a color street shot that really caught my attention. Her clothes and the background worked well together, don’t you think.
Other times It’s not that easy of a choice. When you see a shot that work well both as a black and white and in color, I have to develop them in both and share them in both color and bw.
