Nothing is ever truly black and white, and this is proven by the winners of our The Zone System Rumble! Check out the different kinds of zones between the two opposites after the jump! And no, there aren’t 50 shades of grey here.

Wilson Lee is not new to Lomography. He has taken photos using the Petzval Lens, and produced stunning results.

A popular quote by photojournalist Ted Grant goes, "When you photograph people in color, you photograph their clothes. But when you photograph people in black and white, you photograph their souls!" Indeed, the lack of vibrant color forces the viewer to see beyond what is on plain view and recognize the atmosphere surrounding a photograph. In this post, we've handpicked black and white shots taken in various situations and exhibit different moods.

Colors may be amped to look unreal, like nothing of this world. Shots may be doubled, cross-processed, post-processed, mixed up into collages.

Light and shadow must be one pleasing dance. And just like in a well-choreographed piece, forms are obvious or playing coy. It all depends on how you're looking.
