The old song
It’s an old dilemma for many photographers if they are not just shooting colour photos all the time. But for photographers who love the clean expression of monochrome grayscale photos, it sometimes is a great dilemma what to choose.
The BW photo has this clean and timeless feeling, removing all the distractions that colours add to a photo. A BW photo stands out and delivers the message simpler and often with a clearer impact and expression than a colour photo does.
Sometimes colours are the picture and should be chosen for that reason. When all the magic lies in the colours themselves.
Then there are those situations where you can’t decide what is best. BW or colour?
