Shooting in black and white or in color can dramatically change the look and feel of the photograph. Here are a few general rules of thumb from the Costco Photo Center to guide your decisions and give your photos the biggest impact.
If you are trying to a take a strong photo that has impact and poignancy, everything within the photo must add to that impact. If you think the color is necessary for a strong statement, shoot in color. If it isn’t necessary to the strength of the image, shoot in black and white. As an example, sunsets are arguably stronger in color because it shows context and beauty.
