I love black and white. I love to shoot in black and white. Ever since I started being serious with photography decades ago, I was simply amazed by the magic of black and white or monochromatic images. I loved the “colorful” monochromatic images of Ansel Adams and it’s that very same “effect” that his images have that I always strive to achieve every time.
Over the years, I have almost exclusively photographed in black and white for my own pleasure. When I am out photographing, whatever subject I see and photograph, I try to envision the image first and foremost in monochrome. Simply put, I try to see the subject in black and white….. envisioning how that scene or subject would look like if it where in black and white.
