Thinking and Seeing in Black and White – Free Quick Guide

In the beginning, there were black and white photos. And later came color.

But black and white endured; it did not disappear.

Black and white is the foundation of the art of photography. Even in this digital era, understanding how to take good grayscale images can be a cornerstone to our photographic experience.

One of the keys to producing strong monochrome images is to think and see in black and white.

That concept may appear somewhat abstract. How can we see no colors?

Using your imagination and thinking about how a composition would look in black and white is something you can learn to do.

This skill of ‘seeing’ is fundamental to consistently producing quality black and white photos.

In this guide, we will discuss the following:

  • The history of black and white photography
  • The importance of deliberately choosing your subjects for black and white photos
  • Training your mind to see in grayscale
  • How to evaluate and manipulate tone
  • How the lighting effects black and white imaging
  • Kevin’s trick to see in black and white quickly

Your guide is waiting for you.
