TEN AND ONE 2016 Competition Recap: Monochrome

2016-12-14 12

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. Look back on the striking photographs from the Monochrome category.
