Before I decide to shoot in black and white I first ask myself:
What is the purpose of that photo?
What I want to show?
Are colors important in that photo?
If the answer to the last question is “no,” then surely I will take the black and white photograph.
Black and white photography is more expressive. Black and white photography is a state. Black and white photography often reflects thoughts and emotions. Also, we must admit, the black-white photograph sometimes hides the small imperfections of a picture.
As a general rule, I shot in B&W, on the street. I can find great subjects there!
