This is an exciting time to be a black and white photographer, and never before have we had so much flexibility in our trade. Learning to see in black and white means taking a ton of images and training our eyes to recognize those compositions that benefit the most from monochrome conversion.
Remember, it’s ok to fail. It’s through our failures that we learn the most. For every one good black and white image I take, one hundred go to the wayside, so embrace your mistakes and learn from them. Most importantly, have fun!
