If you look at some early b/w shots, you will see many areas open for improvement. I don't think the technical aspect with some subjects - documentary/street photography/photojournalism - is always the most important aspect of the genre. Telling a story, squeezing out the last drop of atmosphere, is far more important. Sometimes the the odd foible gives the image its charm and it is that which draws us to it. This isn't an excuse, howeve, for poor composition, and bad photography, in my view. You should only break the rules when you understand the rules you are breaking.
It's good that you are thinking like this Karen. It shows that you have a real interest in making a memorable picture and looking for ways beyond the mundane. Experiment as much as you like. It doesn't cost anything these days to do so. Unlike thos old film days.
