Full disclosure..... I am not a B&W photographer/person!
To me beauty is in color!!
But occasionally,..... you know......one has to expand oneself......one has to get out of ones' comfort zone......so you know b&w needs to be experimented with....
I processed these photos in color and then, on a whim, I thought of Peter , who is an avid monochrome lover, and switched all the photos to B&W.
As most photographers know b&w/monochrome photos bring attention to the subject and take away all other distractions; whereas color brings everything in a photo up front.
Since this was done on a whim, I did not do much processing,.... that is to change the hue or tone or whatever it needed for each specific capture, to bring out the subject, bottom "line it is what it is"
Truth be known...this guy's expression was the best and for me color it was perfect but seeing I chose mono chrome.....he remained mono.
This one was dressed in full red suit. I mean Red, Red, which made him stand out but.......since I am doing mono, that's where we are.......which would you have preferred?
Now that we are done with the set up.....here's another full disclosure...... had I really thought this through.......I would have not gone with this tone /shade of b&w ...it looks rather BLAH! Don't you think? 😊😉
