Black and white photography: what are the best subjects? – World of digital cameras | Episode Movies

Black and white photography allows you to step away from reality to set a mood, express emotion and focus on the elements of a composition in a way that color photography simply cannot. Color is conventional, meaning a black and white image has the potential to draw people in and make them look a little deeper.

That’s not to say that color isn’t a powerful compositional device in its own right – one that you can use to set a mood and emphasize a theme or story – it’s just that monochrome allows the viewer to step back and focus on the subjects and relationships between them consider elements differently.
