Color Photography benefits from Black and White

 Thinking in Black and White can really improve your color photography!   Don't just take my word for it see what David DuChemin has to say...

" The very thing that can sometimes do the heavy lifting in color photography is necessarily absent in black and white and monochromatic/duo-tone images, forcing the photographer to look at tones, textures and lines all in new ways. Whether you intend to shoot often in black and whore is not even the point  = learning to see in black and white will significantly strengthen your ability to create color images in which elements like tones, texture and lines are allowed to play a stronger role. A color image with great color is lovely; color image that also has powerful non-color elements is even more compelling. Learning to see and shoot in black and white will do that for you. And if you love black and white already then you don’t need me to convince you.

If I were teaching high school photography I’d do it like I was taught – in black and white. If you missed out on that, now’s the chance to get back to the basics and the beauty of black and white photography.”

David DuChemin
