Default Player's Choice - B&W

Black and white is a category all to its self as everything you do is artistic PP. You can go for contrast or make the dark parts black when they are gray. You can us it to hide the detracting color and only show patterns. Using color filters you can decide what color is dark or light. It as as heavily PP as the “art” photos.

A camera is a machine of light and time with the purpose of capturing a luminous moment. Like the eye it is a tool of the mind.
