Comments on: Gary Stochl (Untitled) http://2point8.whileseated.org/2005/10/20/gary-stochl-untitled/ A wide-open view of the practice of street photography by Michael David Murphy, While Seated. Thu, 27 Nov 2014 11:42:11 +0000 http://wordpress.org/?v=2.7.1 hourly 1 By: Mike http://2point8.whileseated.org/2005/10/20/gary-stochl-untitled/comment-page-1/#comment-116935 Mike Sun, 08 Nov 2009 00:30:17 +0000 http://2point8.whileseated.org/?p=20#comment-116935 Hate to be the bearer of bad news, but most people shot black & white back in the day because colour was too slow, too expensive, and too inconvenient to develop (most people had to mail it in and wait). Not to mention, many of the famous street photographers shot colour alongside their black & white work, but rarely exhibited it, either by choice or because they were unable to, since for a long time colour photography was really looked down upon. Also, I don't take pictures thinking "I wonder what other photographers will think of my processing." If that's the case for yourself, you're a weirdo. That's the problem with photography these days. I highly doubt that non-photographers would look at an image and think "Wonder if he used channels or Lightroom." This is why pros get irritated with the legions of noobs that treat them like rockstars, asking them all the wrong questions about what gear they use, what film they shot, what bag the prefer.

"Ah heck, I'll just make it black and white!" I'm hoping that photographers don't forget how to "think" in black and white, rather than just shooting color all the time and switching in post-processing.

Pre-digital, so you don’t have to think about whether or not the photo was shot in color and digitally converted to black and white because the dress was too distracting and the women on the left was wearing a day-glo yellow jersey

i wonder how many are really thinking this.

this may be simply a point only made by a photographer for photographers.

the black and white way more than likely *does* matter, however (regardless of how it got there,although admittedly there’s something different IMO about desaturated bw vs. ‘natural’ bw).
