Unlike colored photos, black and white photos do not draw your attention with colors. In most cases, the composition, subject, and perspective are what to look for when viewing a black and white photo.
There’s just something dramatic and mysterious with black and white photos. Up until the 1930’s, photos were taken in black and white. Some might even associate black and white photos to history, and photos in color to the more modern times. The contrast in black and white photos add depth and character to the image, and in some cases this makes the outcome better.
For budding photographers, black and white is the way to go. Doing this will allow you to concentrate on the subject and composition, rather than worry about the capturing colors. Go out and shoot at different times, lighting conditions, and locations. And remember that the best way to learn is to experiment. As time passes, you’ll be amazed at the images that you come up with. To give you a bit of inspiration, view some of the stunning black and white photos from our community.

I like to make and use masks with my Lomo'Instant camera, but sometimes they are too dominant. In coming up with more subtle masks, I found several that produced an interesting, distressed look, especially when paired with the camera flash and color gel strips. They're especially good for creating Halloween-themed photos.
Lomography Singapore plays host to Parallel Planets’ first exhibition, "Façades: Neo-Noir Portraits Exhibition," featuring all-analog photography: a sea of black and white film portraits. This exhibition serves as a platform where both local and international photographers can express themselves by injecting individual perspectives into their craft. It also encourages viewers to look through the lens of the photographers, to see the subjects as who they are – flawed, alive, and breathing – and to also see beyond the façades we all choose to don.
