When to look for black and white?

It seems almost too obvious, but one time you may want to consider going to black and white is… when you see strong blacks and whites. Like in this shot I made at a recent wedding:


Strong blacks, strong whites, nice greys, and an off-centre composition. That makes this shot, wouldn’t you say?

Assignment: shoot one photo in black and white today. You can shoot in B/W in your camera or do it in Lightroom/Photoshop/etc.
