It's kind of an irony that in a world filled with incredible colour-capturing technology, we photographers still crave the simplicity of monochrome images. There's something special about an atmospheric landscape scene or travel portrait rendered in gorgeous black and white. This month, expert pro photographer Kav Dadfar provides his top tricks for better shots without colour. Learn to think in mono and recognise where this treatment can allow the viewer to focus on shape, form and texture.

Understand key lens features, cut through the jargon and make better buying decisions, with help from the pros.
