Sometimes I look at black and white photography as giving me the facts. The color is no longer the main wow factor and instead I really start to examine the texture, the light, the composition. Believe me, this Asparagus plant was glorious in all her green, but when stripped down to the basics of light and dark, ironically, she really came to life! For a color-a-holic like myself….it really takes a lot for me to desaturate a photo. Usually after I make it monotone I still can’t decide if I like it or the color version better. I always want to put the two side by side and post them both. But when I saw the color fade away and the light exposing each feathery little detail in the photo I knew that I had made the right choice.
