Black and White Photography as Optimistic

A thought —

The upside of monochrome photography is that it is more optimistic?

Or deeper:

To make optimistic photos in monochrome is more difficult and takes more skill/creative ingenuity than making optimistic color photos.

Let us consider — color is naturally more optimistic, bright and colorful than monochrome. To make dreary, moody, and depressive photos in monochrome is easy. To make optimistic photos in monochrome is a more unique approach.

And perhaps also with color … perhaps color photography that is hyper-saturated but more pessimistic is interesting?


All black everything:
