Ever watch the “Heroes” TV series? They had a mantra on that show “Save the Cheerleader, Save the World”. Black and white photography has absolutely nothing to do with that. I was just checking to see if you’re still awake. Actually, there is a mantra for finding good black and white subjects, “Find the Texture, Save the Shot”.
Whenever I’m walking around looking for something interesting to shoot, I always look for something with a lot of texture, whether its a building, a tree or even a person. Subjects with interesting textures make for some great black and white images.
