The earliest surviving photographic image is a monochrome image. Most of the history of photography is dominated by black and white, sometimes monochrome such as the sepia tone of daguerreotype metal plates and tintype.
A huge amount of pics in your family albums are likely black and white. Many of the images we love from the old masters are black and white. So much has been done with regard to the art of craft of black and white photography.
With such a rich history of the art of grayscale and monochrome photography, it makes a lot of sense to look into how B&W photography can be accomplished digitally. Besides that, it is incredibly fun and rewarding. Seriously, just try it out for yourself!
