Creative Use of Black and White

Black-and-white photography, like blues music, seems to enjoy a resurgence every five or ten years. In truth, neither black-and-white imagery nor blues ever goes anywhere: It's only widespread public perception of them that changes. Monochrome photos are a great creative outlet, letting you strip down your pictures to the basics without the intrusiveness and bias of color. Photoshop is a great tool for working with black-and-white images, both those that were originally conceived and created in monochrome as well as those that were derived from color images. Indeed, Photoshop offers some powerful tools for transforming a full-color image into black and white, mimicking specialized films and filters in flexible ways. In most cases, these procedures offer much more flexibility than you'd get shooting in black-and-white mode with your digital camera, too.
