What a great nighttime shot taken by Geoff Livingston! Black and white photography in itself can be challenging and even more so when you are working at night. Creating successful black and white photos takes a lot of practice, and you must train your eye to see in tone versus color. To avoid your image looking flat or dull, seek out scenes with tonal contrast. In Geoff’s photograph, the bright whites coming from the car lights create dramatic shadows against the concrete and fence that can also be enhanced in post-production. You can shoot your images in color and later convert to black and white on your computer. This allows you to capture more information in the original photo, so you have more control when you edit.
