There used to be reasons to prefer black & white, Many of them have gone away, In prior decades, color photos (except for dye transfer prints) had limited image stability. They were considered suitable for home decoration, but not as works of art. When I started taking pictures in the late 50s, B&W was preferred because it was significantly less expensive. Since the 80s, nearly all amateur photos have been color.

The beauty of the architectural photography lies almost entirely in the monochromatic filter through which Lipp views the world. Sure, the images’ perspective and subject matter are breathtaking on their own, but there’s something about that B&W lens that takes the series to another level.

Of course the black and white vs color debate is a very personal one. For every person I ask who loves shooting mono there are others who much prefer the vibrancy of color photography.

It depends on the particular photograph. In some cases it might be a matter of reducing the graphic qualities to simple tones of gray. In others it might play into a sense of nostalgia or atmosphere. In still others it might be a matter of B&W simply being more flattering than not.

Take, for example, the gorgeous photography of Germany-based Maik Lipp. The artist known also as usrdck captures minimalist images of architecture around the world. From daunting snapshots of skyscrapers to abstract, up-close portraits of bridges, the black-and-white photographs capture a decadent, almost glamorous side to building we often forget exists.

Black and white portraits have timeless look/feel to them which most people like. The benefit for the photographer is that they don’t have to worry about color correction all that much especially for correcting skin tone and such.

Variety“I find the creative process with black and white images is so… artistic. It’s like molding clay – you can shape it into a myriad of shapes. Black and White images can be strong, high contrast and powerful – or they can be so soft, gentle and subtle.” – Belle

Behold, 15 reasons the world really does look better in black and white:

Black and white pictures are generally easier to like. I think it’s because taking a good color picture is somewhat harder than an image you know it’ll be black and white.

Versatility“I love that it’s a format that suits almost any type of photography. Portraits, landscapes, urban landscapes, architecture. Not only that, it’s a medium that adapts really well to all lighting situations. Whereas color photography often works best on sunny days or in brightly lit studios – low light just makes a black and white image moody.’ – Sol

No Distractions“I find that colors can be terribly distracting in some images and can take the focus away from your subject. I do portrait work and find that taking the color out of an image lets the subject speak for themselves. Its raw, it’s stripped back, it’s honest and it allows you to show the true person.” – Shane

in my opinion, when the colors don’t distract a viewer’s eye, it is easier to focus on the form and the subject. and today, the photos in color look more routine rather than the b&w

Black and White photos just don’t have this very crucial source of error to make an otherwise good photo look not that good.

If the big response to the assignment is anything to go by readers of this blog LOVE black and white photography too (I’ve used a few of the images submitted in the assignment on this post to whet your appetite).

Nonsense. Black and white are only better if the subject and light make them better. Most interior photos are not better in B/W than in color. Most trees and and flat landscapes are not better in black and white. High quality black and white are better because the shooter knows that subject in that light will create planes, contrast and mood and is thrilling to see and make an image. There are hundreds of examples that color is the only savior for the subject.

I have a few friends who are into Black and White photography and I asked them what it was that attracted them to it. Here are a few of their reasons for getting a little obsessed with Black and White:

For example in street photography it’s easier to make a picture look better in black and white because you don’t have to worry about unwanted color or colors that don’t match. Sometimes there can be something in the background that has a distracting color and if the picture is in color then the viewer will get distracted by it.

Sometimes, the world looks better in black and white. It just does.

In portrait photography black and white has two benefits. One for the subject and one for the photographer.

As I said yesterday in the post announcing our Black and White Assignment it seems as though Black and White images are making something of a comeback of late as digital camera owners rediscover the beauty of mono images.

Then again, there are probably far more examples of B&W images that really don’t work well, especially not in comparison to their color versions, OP just happened to have come across some images that were particularly appealing that just happened to be B&W.

Subtlety of Tones“I love the subtlety of tones that black and white images can have. In a world that often boasts about how many millions of colors a TV or monitor is able to produce – I love that in ‘Mono’ there is such a variety of what can be achieved in a photo. Black and White sounds so boring – but the fact is that there are so many shades in between – I love the challenge of bringing them all out in an image!” – Jim
