MDowdey No offence but I really think those are just fancy words that are not to be taken literally. Like theres no small roles, but there are small actors. Sure, if youre the best photographer in the world, youd do great with any film HOWEVER not everyone is like there yet. The reason why I suggested not shooting landscapes is not that there is no way one can get a good landscape picture in bw, but it is less likely than with film since colour IMHO plays a VERY important role in landscape shots and contrast isnt as important. On the other hand, in portraits colour may sometimes add to the quality of the pic, but will in more cases take something away from it, especially if the model doesnt have perfect skin tones.
