Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #156: Black and White


This week, on Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #156, Anne from Slow Shutter Speed assigned the topic of Black and White.

Like Anne, I also always shoot in RAW and in color and often times, I don’t make the decision of turning a photo black and white until I start my edits in Lightroom. One of the reasons I often choose to turn a photo into black and white has to do with the weather. For example, in the photo above, the sky was cloudy as if threatening to rain. I thought it would look more dramatic black and white than in color.

There are rare occasions where I knew what I want to do with a photo at the time of photograph. This is one of those moments. I saw the finishing product at the time of composing the photo and besides, there would’ve been a blue tinge from the snow if I left it in color.

    • I didn’t particularly like the color version of the first photo because of the dark clouds looming above and the scene was a little too green. The second photos is one of my favorite black and white to date.
