Why Black & White is the goto look for street photographers
Black & White still remains the photographer’s favorite for Street Photographers with very good reasons. Where in other genres, monochrome has become a niche look, Street Photography is different and for very good reasons. Why does Black & White remain as the favorite choice for Street Photographers and are there logical reasons to go for it?
Naturally Black & White was the first choice for photographers due to technical restrictions. Film wasn’t able to showcase color and it took a long time until more and more Street Photographers explored new opportunities with color work. Nonetheless, most of the Street Photography photos are still in Black & White. Without a question, modern technology is more than able to capture colors of the real world. If necessary, editing makes it possible to change the look of colors in any direction you can imagine. Additional complexity like white-balance becomes easier to deal with, thanks to digital cameras where the photographer can change those settings in the RAW-Format afterward.
Following are some of the reasons why Black & White is still popular amongst Street Photographers.
