Color came along in 1930 and yet black and white photography is still going strong. As I type this there are 86,192,410 public posts under the tag #blackandwhite on Instagram.
Shooting in Black and White will change the way you pay attention to negative space, reflections, light, shadows and patterns. It shows you how distorted and distracting colors can leave photos. Tones and contrasts become paramount.
In college I took 35 mm black and white photography classes where I learned to process film and photos in a dark room. I used Kodak Tri-X 400 36 exp film in my 35mm SLR Nikon N55.
