Generally I shoot colour for clients, with a little Black & White. For myself its a mix, sometimes mainly colour, other times its all Black & White.
Often Black & White images for clients are now more of what I call, selective colour. Its a Black & White Image but some colour has been left in.
Its proving very popular exspecially for Weddings and if it sells then you do it.
I am in a very mixed mind set; not sure if I like it or not
If you click on the above two images you will be able to judge for yourself.
I shot these with my Leica M4 film camera with a Leica Summicron 35mm f/2. I used a colour film, and scanned the results. I suspected at the time that the image might look good in Black & White with a slight sepia tint, but the green bottles would also look good in colour.
Once I had the scans in Adobe Lightroom I produced a Black & White version and then decided to go the desaturated route, while taking out most of the colour, the green stayed fairly strong in the bottles, so I decided to make a feature of it.
Now I cannot decide what I like most. What do you think?
