Colour vs Black & White

Not sure how I feel about both to be honest. I think the images that work better in colour are the ones where the subject is still while elements are moving. It’s easier to understand what is going on in the image, whereas with black ad white, I believe the image becomes more of an abstract blur.

Maybe I could include both colour and black and white images in the final book. I’ll come to a final decision when I have more images to work with.

Best images from first day of shooting

Not sure which technical style I prefer more. Have the subject still while letting other elements move by, or pan along with the subject making the background more blurry. Which one works better with the title passing of timeĀ ? I’ll bring these points up in my next tutorial.
