Favorite Photos: Black And White

Black and white is a format I don’t explore often enough. I always shoot in color and then convert in post-processing, but sometimes it takes someone else’s eye to point out that a particular shot might be intriguing in black and white. I like the moodiness and edge that a black and white treatment gives to a photo, but to use it is not my first instinct because I just love color so much.

A few of my favorite black and white compositions taken with my Olympus E-620.
