your D-SLR will successfully convertinto a powerful and engaging black &white. I’d suggest that if you chooseto explore the joys of mono then yougo out in search of them specifically,rather than shoot in the hope thatone or two might, by chance, havethe right ingredients. My shot of acanal (above) is a case in point. Itwas a drab, dull scene in colour but intones of black & white it’s a far moregraphic and moody photo.
