What makes a good black and white image

Black & White

This week's main event at camera club was a presentation, prepared and delivered by chairperson Bob Humphreys. Whilst there are a few members who regularly produce excellent black and white photographs, others have yet to fully explore and test themselves in this technique. Bob extolled the qualities of B&W, in particular the way in which it can focus on pattern, texture and tone.
