Black and white photography can give specific scenes a prominent, everlasting quality when done well. Not every shot will work in Black and White Photography, just like some shots look more gorgeous in monochrome than in color.
Color plays an essential role in how we distinguish the world around us. So when you opt to shoot a photograph in black and white, it significantly changes what is in front of the lens. Without color, other essentials of the photograph take on a superior role in telling the story. Notice how lighting, contrast, and composition are much more significant in these stunning examples of black and white photography.
