The truth is that many photographers see monochrome versions of their photos as the “back-up” version in case the sunset or sunrise isn’t great, as well as if the sky is not interesting. These pictures have obviously not been created with monochrome in mind. As such, most of the time, you’ll find them to be not all that interesting. So, what’s the solution? Well, it’s quite easy. When you plan a golden hour shoot, you'll want to know where the sun is going to set, which parts of the environment or your subject will be illuminated by the light and which parts will be in the shadow. You'll also need to know where to place your subject. This is the perfect moment for thinking about about how your pre-visualised frame will look in monochrome rather than in colour. Does the composition work without the colours? Does the frame get messier or cleaner? Are there any strong leading lines to capture the attention of the viewer? These are just some of the questions that you should ask yourself, along with many others, before you take a monochrome shot. Remember that an amazing, colourful scene can make for a boring monochrome image and vice versa.
