Black & White photos

Some itemized advice for shooting B&W digital pictures:

  • B&W loves textures and fine grained surfaces
  • Check your light
  • Use low ISO: Image noise is more visible in B&W
  • Check your composition: The lack of colours will make your spectator more attentive to a a bad framing
  • Before converting to B&W, do all the cleaning and editing (the results will be better)
  • Your photo software may have a better option that just desaturate or convert from colours to grey shades
  • Edit again after conversion to Black-and-White
  • Even when shooting in colour: If it does not work in colour, try it in B&W
