Impressive B/W Cloud Photography by Marinus Wieten

Marinus Wieten, a Dutch photographer, is a strong advocate of black and white photography. As over the years color photography has become the norm, he argues that shooting in black and white is still a great way to capture drama, atmosphere and detail. “Black and white photography strips away the feelings commonly associated with certain hues,” he says. “The focus is on the image, not on the colors in the composition. Stripping away the color is a process that forces the onlooker to take in the image as it is in form.” If you’re still unsure whether to give black and white photography a try, perhaps Marinus’ photos of clouds can convince you.

Definitely beautiful, awesome images. Shooting clouds in b/w is pretty clever. At first I thought it seemed counter-intuitive, but on further reflection it seems obvious. I read somewhere that we should always shoot in color and change to b/w in post-production, but I wonder if there is any advantage to shooting in b/w–if these were indeed shot that way. Regardless, great, inspirational images.
