Black-and-white photography is stark. It forces you to see the image rather than the color. A low-light image of shadows can look like nothing in a color photograph but be a powerful picture in black and white. It can also convey remarkable purity of emotion or action.
Black and white photography removes any distraction of color and helps the viewer focus on other aspects of the photo, such as the subject, the textures, shapes and patterns, and the composition. So, you can use all the same composition techniques – like the rule of thirds – that you'd use in color photography.
