On that note, let me dish out ways to click a double-tap worthy black and white picture. Take notes!
1. Calling out the Black and White mode on your smartphone
Use the inbuilt monochrome mode in the camera which will help you visualise the scene better.
2. Understand the exposure
In a coloured photo, it is easy to adjust the contrast, whereas in the B&W composition all the colours look the same. To overcome that, you can look for striking blacks in the scene. The exposure will help you in giving depth to the picture.
3. Focus on your surroundings
With a black and white picture, you have more liberty to click patterns, structures, and designs around you. Focus on your surroundings, you can find the right balance anywhere and everywhere.
4. It’s all in the details
When you click pictures of old surfaces, you see shadows in the designs. That is why they look so good. It is important you pay attention to the details.
5. Click first and then give effects
You should shoot the pictures in raw mode. If you use the inbuilt B&W, the picture doesn’t turn up according to your expectation, you don’t want to regret the missed opportunity.
6. The software you can opt for
Apart from Photoshop, Lightroom is a great software to edit your pictures. You can set that sentimental atmosphere and leave the viewers wondering what you were thinking when you clicked this picture.
