“When you photograph people in color, you photograph their clothes. But when you photograph people in Black and white, you photograph their souls!”
― Ted Grant
I will admit that there is something unique and powerful about a black and white photograph. I don't normally shoot in black and white except when experimenting with contrast by hornbeck, but I do have a percentage of images that I convert to black and white during the editing process.
Recently, I made the decision to start a new Instagram account and post all of the black and white images currently scattered through my main account. This account gericentonze_bw definitely has a cohesive look that sets it apart from my gericentonze account.
With only a handful of followers and photos posted, several B&W communities on Instagram have already featured my images which is very encouraging. Maybe there is something inherently more powerful about a black and white photograph.
