MacVoices #22055: Kirk McElhearn on Appreciating Black and White Photography (2)

In our quest to better appreciate black and white (monochrome) photograph, Kirk McElhearn both talks about and shows some revealing examples of his own work. They perfectly illustrate some of the points Kirk makes, and helps us understand why what we might feel is less is actually more. Get ready…you are going to want to experiment with black and white photography yourself. (Part 2)
