I am an avid black and white lover. It’s not that colour photos are not lovely or they don’t tell the story that well, it’s just that black and white says it better. Personally colour is tricky, you have to have balance and you have to see how it works best. Its all about the surrounding colours, if they are contrasting or complimentary. I got so used to black and white that the whole story of colour scares me at times.
What I have understood though is that keeping it simple and to the least amount of colours in the frame works best.
