The program tonight was presented by WORLD HERALD photographer Ryan Sonderlin on black and white photography. Ryan showed some of his own photos and then mentioned some points about what makes good photography and good black and white photography in general.
He mentioned Having a clean background, showing emotion, mood and has proper exposure and shooting lots of photos. The same criteria apply for color and black and white photography.
Ryan felt shooting in color, then converting to black and white rather than the reverse is the way to go
