I love shooting landscapes in black and white, especially the arctic landscape of Svalbard. The cliffs, rocky shores and the light up here is almost screaming for a b/w shot. I was talking to a friend of mine about b/w photography and he was wondering wether I was shooting with my camera set on greyscale, but I don´t. I always shoot in color, but sometimes I am already planning to convert the images into black and white while I shoot. One of the advantages about thinking b/w is that you will be able to expose differently, focusing on contrast and shape, rather then thinking about getting detail in the shades.
Here are some of my black and whites from my latest trip around Svalbard. Hope you enjoy them.
PS! These look great on the wall as fine art prints and on canvas.
