Black and Wings
If we think of an "emotional” way of photographing I think almost all of us will imagine some famous image in black and white. I don't think that this is just the result of the cultural factor related to the history of reportage photography. When looking at a picture in B&W the observer can be pushed to transfer an emotion into it, to actively participate in the vision of the reality interpreted by the photographer,
In wildlife photography, where the human element is not present and the process of identification is more difficult, this step assumes even greater loads.
To remove the color in a B&W photo that "works", it means to remove a distraction that interferes with the viewer's ability to see shades, textures and contrasts. The composition becomes the key to guide the eye through the image using lines, shapes, shadows and get straight to the point.
