Working With Black and White Images
Anyone can take snapshots; skilled amateurs capture the scenes that whiz largely unseen past the world at large. A skilled photographer spends a lifetime visualizing and snatching those rare images that flicker and fade forever. Split seconds that will never again manifest themselves.
Photography animates people's emotions. A photograph gives viewers a chance to experience the ecstasy or grief of a given moment as often as they see fit. While the here and now perishes quickly, a photo lives on.
