Instead of adding creative touches to a photograph, you can subtract something to make an image more powerful… you can take away the color! In doing so, other qualities and strengths of an image are enhanced. A black and white photograph is simple yet sophisticated, has timeless appeal and in many cases, communicates more clearly with the viewer. I like the weathered face of this man that I recently photographed in Cuba. Pictured in black and white, it looks like he could be in any place or time. Happy shooting!
