B&W Principle # 4
- A dark-toned subject against a light background should have well defined shadow detail.
Why? Look at the work of Brett Weston. The use of deep blacks without detail works just fine.
Generalities are fine but as put here seem to push “rules” that might work for “pretty pictures” but not necessary for fine images.
"A good still photograph, studied by an inquiring mind, frequently yields more information than a mile of moving images". Walter Cronkite, New York, June 1989
