Color or B&W?

August 21, 2013  •  Leave a Comment

I had the pleasure of shooting B Barnett recently. B is a fitness competitor, yogi, model, trainer, and all around beautiful human being. It seemed like I couldn't get a bad shot if I tried!

As I was going through the photos, I looked at this one B Barnett

and thought "I wonder how this would look in black and white?"

B Barnett So I did it in black and white.

And now I'm torn. I love them both. I asked B and her husband Scott, and they both prefer the color one. Other friends prefer the b&w. There's a lesson here for me. Well, maybe more than one lesson.

  1. The old aphorism: beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Always true.
  2. It's not necessarily either-or. Sometimes it's and.
  3. Sometimes my preference depends on my mood.

That said, I wonder what more of you think. Color? Or black and white?
