Black and white photography is my favorite way to process my pictures. I think it adds a lot of character and can most certainly change the look, feel and tone of the picture. Absence of color can often, in my opinion, convey a lot more feeling and emotion than color. Not only that, but absence of color lets the viewer of the picture imagine for himself what the picture may look like in color.
Here are a few of my recent favorites. Some of these have been posted on my 365 project page here.
