Black and White photography is versatile and can bring a quality to some photos that colour just cant achieve, from photography subjects ranging from portraits to landscapes. It works with all kinds of lighting from dark to light and portrays moods extremely well. There is a photographer I found on 500px. Who does some impressive portrait in Black n White most of his subjects look like homeless people to me which works well with his grungy style they have a shabby, dirty feeling to there character and condition. Im not sure but his photos look as though they are processed using Nik Silver Efex Pro and then the Filter Tonal Contrast found in Nik Color Efex pro’s. Not sure but that’s my guess.
