How do you know when to go Black and White or stay Color?
How many times have you gotten a certain photo while your editing and thought “wow, this would look great in black and white” only to find out that you love the color just as much?
See, there is no right or wrong answer to which way you should edit your image. The way I decide on Black and White or Color is based on feel. How that one image feels to me when I am editing it. If it just feels right in Black and White than thats what I go for.
In the case of the image in this video I fist felt that it was much stronger in color. Once I edited it Black and White I thought to myself that it just didn’t have that pop I was looking for. After looking at it more I started to like the Black and White more but I am still not sure.
This is one of those images where I like it in both color and black and white. They both have their positives but I am not sure one stands out more than the other.
What do you think, how do you decide when to go Black and White and or stay in Color?
