"If you don't want noise in photos, you can lower the shutter speed and raise the 'abitured'. You could get really sports photos that way."- To whoever said this: you are an idiot. To attempt to reduce noise, you alter the ISO. All lowering the shutter speed and raising the aperture would do is cause you to get streaky photos where you really can't tell what's going on.
"Black and white photos are artistic, and landscape pictures are artistic, so I wanna take a black and white landscape photo and be double artistic."- What? It's like the person that said this is trying to piss off photographers. It's hard to express what's wrong with this statement because it's actually quite hard to determine what the right way to say it would be. I suppose if the person... no. It can't be done.
"All art is better in black and white. It leaves more to the imagination. It's not just photos, even TV. Like, I Love Lucy and I Dream Of Genie. they were so much better and had more depth than modern day TV."- Yes! A sexually objectified subservient woman who exists for the sole purpose of serving her man with magic powers is much deeper than say, medical dramas, shows that evaluate the morality of how the government operates, or shows that examine justice in today's world but do so through entertainment. And black and white film was certainly an artistic choice when Color TV didn't exist.
