SOME LIGHT INFORMATION TO REFLECT ON

flower

 

Leaves are green because they absorb red and blue wavelengths of light, they don’t absorb green. The green light is reflected making the plant look green to your eyes.

Opaque objects are the colour they are because that is the colour that they don’t absorb. The colour you see is the colour they reflect, that is why you can see them in the first place.

I don’t think these rules apply in black and white photography.
