Do Black-and-White Films Still Have a Place in This Modern World?


When we revisit cinema of the past, the black-and-white films come aplenty. The challenge is to keep every element to befit harmoniously with each other, since the absence of color. Everyone shoots in color, whether film or photograph. Now, fewer-to-zero films are being shot in black and white, relying on the beauty of hues.

So what can we say now to an old aesthetic? indeed black and white holds the power of nostalgia and the past -- the element of mastery because of the challenging grind to make a film or photograph either just as likely as reality, or more beautiful than what they represent.

With black and white, it's a battle of shapes and form, light and darkness -- a battle for mastery.
