I saw this link to - How to Compose Brilliant Black and White Photos - on the Art Teacher Facebook page and just had to share.
Of special note, if you like black and white photography is to research the photographers. Eadweard Muybridge (TATE Exhibition), Margaret Bourke-White Biography,
"Remi Noel, a French photographer fascinated by the Jack Kerouac ideal of "America," spent eight years -- from 2004 to 2012 -- traveling through Texas in search of that classic sense of Americana. That, by itself, might have been unremarkable or repetitive, but when Noel started adding in images of his only companion on his journey -- a Batman action figure -- things took a fascinating turn."
