“When you photograph people in color, you are photographing their clothes. When you photograph them in B&W, you photograph their souls.”    — Ted Grant.

Nice quote, and so true. Taking the colour away means your eyes go straight away to the person’s face more specifically their eyes and expression. Much better for people shots as your mind will get distracted from the person in the picture by the colours around them.

So, this picture of me needs changing into Black and White, oh hold on, I’m not wearing clothes!!!
