I am still undecided about wether I should stick to B&W OR colour. I seem to long for that consistent look and feel of my photos. Surely, that can only be achieved by sticking to one OR the other?
I don’t go out shooting having decided already if I shoot b&w or colour only. I observe and consume whatever comes my way. I do tend to lean towards colourful images but they are much more difficult to make in my opinion.
Colour is very hard to contain and control. You have to make it one of the most crucial ingredients and most of the time it doesn’t happen. But when it does… it feels great
Having said that, sometimes while shooting you just know that this image will work in b&w only and most of the time that is the case. And I do love the abstract, more direct, simplistic world of b&w. I am not sure I can say goodbye to it just yet…
If anyone is torn between the two like I am, I’m curious to hear your thoughts. Do you feel like you don’t shoot or produce to your full potential by not sticking to one OR the other?
