The strength of shooting in black and white lies in its ability to tell dramatic stories without relying on the impact of vivid colors. In the absence of distracting hues, more weight is given on how light shapes the scene and the photographer's task is to capture the arresting form and intense emotions formed. Express yourself in classic black and white photographs through our Monochrome competitions.
