Understand The Significance Of Black And White Street Photography
In these digital times, black and white photography (or monochrome) happens later, during post-production, and not directly in the camera (unless you have a tweaked sensor or the Leica Monochrom camera).
We shoot in the way the camera has been engineered to work, and it has been built to see color and render it the best way possible. Today I'm going to share nine tips that will positively impact in your final black-and-white image conversions and how to show off your black and white street photography. Street photography has a great relationship with monochrome, and personally, I think this because of black-and-white’s ability to convey a message without the distraction that color may introduce into a scene. Thus, often making black and white street photography an excellent outcome.
We have to remember as photographers and viewers that street photography happens in situations where we have little control, and sometimes the colors in the scene may not be the best palette.
Therefore, everyday colors can detract from the impact of the message and the viewer’s response to it.
Let’s say we are using Adobe Lightroom. We just press the letter “V” in Develop mode – and let the fun begin.
