Achieving a properly exposed negative is only the beginning to
creating a striking black and white image. The real work lies in the translation - the print. It has been compared to music; where the negative is the composition, the score and the print is the
performance. Since we do not see in black and white or more accurately shades of gray, there is very little preconceived notion as to what "orange" or "green" should look like in black and white.
That is the challenge and also the freedom that black and white offers.
