There are certain images which are more dramatic in black and white and you can see the shadows and highlights in every detail. Such compositions can radiate all sorts of emotions and tell very different stories. They project different moods and atmospheres which we feel strongly through the image.
This can be seen in street photography where you can capture patterns and textures on buildings, where you can see the emotion on peoples’ faces and the reflections in the windows. Or it may be a day when a storm is approaching and the clouds are grey and heavy and the image oozes darkness and gloom.
