Color or toned monochrome? I don’t wish to always show both, or always show one or the other; but, I have some local viewers who do not like the monochrome images, and they consistently let me know it, while I tend to often prefer monotone.
I value tone, form, and structure, and color in my opinion is a distraction. I also do not like “snapshots” of reality so I try to reduce the depth of field as well as remove the colors. I also value consistency rather than different intense colors. Also, I am a contrarian and I also like to offset the “reality of Homewood event photography” with something else in my blog.
