THE POWER OF BLACK AND WHITE

Composing black and white photos is different than working in colour. Certainly lines, perspective and content are still important, however, even more so is the tonal range, and the use of light in the image as well as the distribution of 'weight' throughout the composition. A balance of the various visual building blocks helps the viewer find their way through and sit with the image.
These and many other factors will be covered in the upcoming Digital Black and White Photography Workshop
