While this genre of photography might seem simple, it's still challenging because black-and-white photography is not defined in only two colors. There are many shades of grey, ranging from the blackest black to the whitest white, and they should be used in creative ways in order to get a truly stunning monochrome photograph.
Indeed black and white is an amazing medium, and if you want to learn how to emulate the masters of black and white photography, please take a look at Kent DuFault's Better Black And White Guide.
