How to decide whether the photograph looks better in color or B&W?
Sometimes it’s just what the client wants, but here’s my trick: Every photograph undergoing editing will be seen in both color and B&W. You’d be surprised how many times a photograph will stand out and look so much better in B&W. I also love B&W photography. Who doesn’t!
Here’s an example of a photograph I took:
And here’s the same photographed edited in B&W:
To me, the Black and White version of that photograph is pretty amazing. What do you think?
Now take the same photograph and crop it in just a tad more:
I could totally see that in a magazine or billboard, now.
Always look at your photography in both color and black and white to see which version you like better.
