Shooting in black and white is an art form itself, I see black and white as a genre all on its own. It's difficult to see images in monochrome and it is a skill that needs to be rehearsed like any other. For me colour will always be my main focus because I love it.
I love the vibrance and the additional elements colour brings to my shots but that doesn't mean I'm entirely unaware of the stunning graphic nature of good solid black and white images. It is the very absence of colour that strengthens these shots and simplifies the topic for the viewer, forcing them to see exactly what you were seeing when the image was made.
After some consideration, I have added a category of black and white to my Series 5 project as I feel I have five strong images to share. For those who are unfamiliar with the project it is a collection of five images based around a topic. It's something I have really enjoyed creating and continually add to the collections when possible.
The page can be accessed using the link in the paragraph above or via the Tips & More section of the site. I now have eight galleries covering a variety of topics which will I continue to grow as time, and images, allow.
