Lilies in Black and White (Four Photographs)

I chose to do these in Black and White because I knew the contrast, texture and color would lend itself well to B&W. My composition was focused on the subject and I kept the background natural by not removing all the detritus and none of the insects. However one looks at photography today, it’s still true that a lot of photographers began their efforts in B&W and some schools of photography insist on it. I recall a photographer whose clients were increasingly asking for color digital photography, getting a bit frustrated with the transition to digital, just as now some of us are in doing our first black and whites from color digital files.
