I bet I haven’t taken two rolls of B&W pictures in my life.
You guys are changing that for me.
I friend of mine decades ago who was a photography student always said that color just covered up poor photography. I guess that would be a good starting point for a robust discussion. It sounds good but I do not necessarily buy it and have no dog in this.
Of course today it's easy to convert color images to black & white either by desaturation or separating the color image into separate RGB channels. Back when I was learning the ropes we used Panalure paper for black & white from color negatives.
Great images, everyone.
I have a roll of HP5+ drying that I will scan and probably post when I start the next thread.
There is definitely a time and place for color, when color conveys the mood or the memory, but......
Black and White seems to declutter the image in many circumstances.
From the late 70's to late 80's I generally went out with three cameras: one with black & white, one with color transparency, and one with color negative.Still using a few of those cameras even today.
