Black and white photography has always fascinated me
And who does not, right? It is so powerful and essential that it goes straight to the point, but with the lack of colors! How cool is that?... I still remember, in my early stages of learning, when I really understood the meaning of making a black and white image; I mean, what are the necessary ingredients to make a B&W photo? The answer is simple, the blending and combination of "two colors": black and white, that's all!
We can appreciate in the history of photography, that black and white was used in many ways and with different "style" choices. But let's begin by first understanding what we are talking about and the right definition of a black and white photograph.
