While the photographic world has converted to digital to a large extent, the charm of black & white images remain. With the inherent drawback of digital sensors, knowing how to take superior monochromes can be an art in itself. Whether it’s street photography or fashion, travel or fine art; every genre has its fair share of fans of this format. So learn to interpret the world in black & white.
