There are so many different interest when it comes to photography. In our area many shoot for color and sell color prints. I have asked myself why BW when there is so much beauty in reds oranges blues and yellows. I believe my feeing for myself is I am a mood phtographer which BW protrays a dramatic effect when shooting old structures and historic scenes. When I close my eyes I see the world in greyscale. I feel the past in what I shoot. I connect through dark and light shades. When I find an abandoned old house there is a flow that finds its way through my lens. I experince an sense of what was there. The dead silence tells so much. I use digital so I shoot a color file, but I have already seen the light grays and dark blacks long before I get to my computer.
Now I ask to all out there what makes you shoot what you do. For many I know it is a living, but for orhers it is because you see something in what you shoot.
