What Looks Good in Black & White

SCOTT KELBY

Some subjects just look great when you convert them from color to black and white, so when you’re out shooting, keep an eye out for anything with lots of texture, like the peeling paint on the side of an old building, rusty old machinery, anything with an interesting shape or lots of contrast (because you don’t have the crutch of color, you have to look for other things to lead the eye), objects with a lot of metal, old barns, old cars, old abandoned factories, and also consider cloudy days with dark menacing skies a perfect subject for black and white. In fact, any gray nasty day can wind up being a field day for black and white because you don’t have to worry about avoiding the sky since it’s not a nice, blue, sunny day. In black and white—it’s all gray.
