Color and B&W
2 months ago

Having grown up with B&W TV and using B&W film for years. I am having a bit of a problem with the current use of quality dslr's for B&W. I do think that there are shots that look good in B&W but I just haven't developed an appreciation for it, at least not yet.  To me it seems a poor use of the current high quality equipment available. Is it just that it's something new and different to the generation that did not have to live with B&W as the best available? Or maybe its just that I refuse to move on to the new or old or whatever. Anyway I often look through Smug Mug admiring the great shots posted there and noting the equipment used and I usually just ignore the photos posted in B&W.

So, what am I missing, why is B&W now great...again?
