A few days ago, Katrina posted a few images of Ella doing gymnastics. These images were black and white. Why? Because sometimes black and white is just so much better than colour. When you look at these two images, you don’t notice Ella at all in the colour image. For most of us, we notice red things first, and those two big red pads draw our attention in a big way. When we flip the image to black and white, the red no longer attracts the attention of our eyes and we can focus on the action. If your photographs are looking really “busy” try black and white, it may be just what they need.
