PHOTOGRAPHY TIPS FOR YOU:
Sure, the average black and white photo is just black and white. Well, there are a number of grays in there as well, but for the most part, there is not a ton of difference. Or is there? Somewhere in that photo, you will find a spot that is completely white and another that is completely black. If you work with the contrasts between them, you can create some pretty awesome photos.
We all know that the contrast helps to mark more textures and defines the tones much better. However, do this with care. Here is the thing. By increasing the contrast in an exaggerated way, you could ruin your photography. Playing with the contrast in a wrong way can make you lose desired details on the picture.
