At some point in my life I will only shoot black and white. No matter the results, black and white is always my favorite. Color, in great light, the right ingredients, is great, but I’ll choose the black and white from the same scene, every time.
It’s not better, just different, and for some reason, it is what I prefer to look at.
I also like grain, the more the better. Real grain, not noise. Noise just doesn’t do it for me. Grain gives texture and depth.
This is the Z man, someone I’ve been photographing for some time now, and he is fun to work with. He reminds me of my brother, serious, but then given the chance will give me a look that leaves us both laughing.
