Color vs. Black & White: Ohio Creek Range, Gunnison, Colorado
I’ve been looking hard at the shots I got from my Gunnison outing last month. In doing so I find I’m learning a lot about not only the technical differences in black and white vs. color, but also the differences in the stories the two approaches tell. All part of trying to learn not only about photography, but who I am as a novice shooter, as well. So, that said, here are two takes on a landscape I shot. They’re very different pictures to be the same picture, aren’t they?
Now the black and white:
Greg Thow recommended the b/w crop to remove all the negative space – that color gradient is signal in the top image but noise in the bottom one.
