Color vs. black and white

I mostly shoot in color but every once in a while I do some black and white.  It is surprising to me how many people do shoot in black and white or at least convert to black and white.

I’ve seen some very compelling black and white photography but for lots of subjects I think color is just so much better.

Check out this little piece on color vs. black and white.

If you’ve read my blog before you noticed that I dropped out for a while.  I guess I was out of “big” articles.  So I’m going to try to post more frequently but do shorter stuff.  We’ll see.

    Thanks, Art, that was beautiful. What a great reminder of the blessing seeing in color is! Black and white has its place, but generally, nothing beats color!

    Sometimes we just plain run out of stuff to share, I guess. But please know that I have sorely missed your posts, Art. Welcome back.

    Although I almost exclusively do color images, there is something wonderfully breathtaking/dramatic in some black and whites. The single tree i the field and the Eiffel Tower with the fountains – beautiful either way.
