Recently, I posted a photo of the Dijver Canal with the Church of Our Lady‘s Tower in the distance. This post is getting up close and personal, viewing Bruges’ tallest tower in color and in black and white.
The “two ways” in the title could refer to experiencing the church tower in color and in B&W, but it also could refer to focusing on the significance of the building versus focusing on photographic technique. Photo lesson “Project 11: Black and white or colour” explores how the interpretation of a subject changes with the use or lack of color. Between the two versions, one seems older, colder, and more ominous. By changing the medium, the viewer’s experience of the subject matter is changed.
My husband prefers the color version and I lean towards the black and white. Which do you prefer and why?
