If you want to make better black and white photos then you need to learn to see in black and white. It’s a phrase you’ve probably heard before, but what does it actually mean?
Learning to see in black and white means understanding composition beyond simple basic principles like the rule of thirds.
It means understanding how light works, and which subjects naturally look good in black and white.
To help out with these skills we’ve made a set of printable black and white photography photo tips cards for you to download and keep.
The cards explain the key skills you need to become a better black and white photographer. We’ve deliberately kept it simple but effective – you can put the ideas into action today and see results right away.
Save the JPEG files below on your computer or mobile device for easy reference. Better still, sign up for our free mini black and white photography course (see below) and we’ll send you a PDF version of the photo tips cards to keep forever!
