I love mono images.
 Do you think there is  a market for Black and white images  in  microstock  do you sell them.
have a great weekend

Always shoot color...if the designer wants it B&W, he / she will take care of it.

Sometimes when I have a series of different shots, I'll throw in some in B&W when it warrants it.  They get accepted and get sold.

One of my top sellers in a B&W image of a couple's first dance at a wedding reception.

i adore B&W but i feel color is what buyers want.
then lately i see some monochromatic shots on the frontpage.
but if you observe it's shots that does nothing for color...
eg. i shot a lovely black and white cat in an outstanding pose. i was about to submit it in color until i saw at one of the sites a black and white of a black cat.
so i thought again, and submitted it in black and white.
why would anyone want a color shot of a black cat , or a black and white cat? LOL

so, really, it all depends. if your images are better in grey scales,
i would send it in B&W.

Much of my stuff that I sell privately is B&W.  I really enjoy working in mono, various shades ...  I do have a few B&W's in the micros.... not big sellers at all, but they do sell.  One of a wingback chair in my mother's Victorian living room moves quite a bit.  And one close up of my daughter-in-laws pregnant belly seems to move.
      Don't think anyone will be making big money in the micros with B&W. As someone mentioned,  if an art director wants a B&W, they'll find a color image that suits them and convert it themselves.  8)=tom
