no pun intended ... but a full range of tones may make ya shot lack in contrast and look flat imho?Stoned said:Personally, I believe a full range of tones are important.
Hmm, what I mean is that I think it's important to have pure black, pure white and a nice range of greys in between. That's what I prefer at least.Witness said:no pun intended ... but a full range of tones may make ya shot lack in contrast and look flat imho?
i tink monos have a timeless feel to them..... capture tt nicely, and its a nice black and white to me...
As long as it can bring you into the emotion of the moment the shot is captured, it is a good photo. If you are referring to the technical aspects, it may be the best print, may have the best tonal range etc but if it doesn't tell the story it is intended to, it is still not a good photograph.laughingstation said:hey any black n white pros here can tell me or show me what is a really good b n w foto?
