A thing I noticed while comparing some colour portaits with B/W. The lighting was both evening sun behind the subject and a soft reflection of light in the face of the person I made the picture of. The effect in the colour picture is great though this type of lighting doesn't seem to work in B/W. Why is that the sun gives this dramatic effect in the shapes, shadows, the light thruw the hair and on the shoulders in colour but the same light looks rather dull in B/w?
This is something I just won't understand in B/W.
So is the light setting (mainly directions) that much different for good B/W than it would be for colour?
