This is why I love black and white photography. These men are dying cotton in a vat of bright yellow dye. I had two camera bodies with me, one loaded with color film and one with black and white; I chose to shoot the scene in black and white and I think that it’s infinitely more interesting this way. In a color photograph, the yellow would have leaped out and overwhelmed the image of men doing difficult manual labor in a cramped shop.
I’d love to see the color one for comparison
There wasn’t any color one…
Perhaps we could “color” it in Photoshop..just a thought
That would be fun as an exercise, but I still love this shot exactly as it is.
