In “common photographic mistakes“, Ming Thien states, “amateur black and white generally tends to be too flat or too contrasty.” I need to see examples to better understand what these mean. Having been exposed to primarily colour photographs, seeing more black and white photos would help develop a sense of quality. Regardless, the comments are perhaps a useful starting point for critique of my photos.
What do you think?
Do you have a preference to photograph in colour or black and white? Do you process afterwards or set your camera to B&W?
