Black & White Photography Techniques

When I first took up photography as a serious hobby about three years ago, I considered black and white photography very outdated, however I can now see the beauty of it and while I don't produce many black and white images, I do look for them and have created a few that I am pleased with. In this article from Picture Correct, by Andrew Goodall, he gives three very simple tips that will help you appreciate and enjoy producing black and white images, at least occasionally! Andrew writes for http://www.naturesimage.com.au and is a nature photographer based in Australia. He manages a gallery in Montville full of landscape photography from throughout Australia.

Black and white photography is a rewarding and challenging field of artistic photography. Even people who don’t care about photography can find themselves drawn to a great black and white image. As a photographer, black and white can allow you to discover a whole new character in a familiar subject. For many digital photographers, black and white photography is nothing more than colour photography converted by software. It is a matter for your own judgement whether this is effective for your photographs.
