I work both in b/w and colour but sometimes b/w just works better, especially in fine art nude, or lets say I am only recently beginning to make colour fine art nudes because before my opinion was all fine art should only be in colour. I also make landscape photos in b/w because with the technic today converting colour to b/w makers them look so good and it has this nostalgia to it.
Sometimes I put a lot of effort into it, getting the right model, hair, mua, finding location, getting props etc. but honestly, when you have the right model and you go out in the nature to take fine art nudes almost in the spare of the momentwith no worries, the model is more relaxed, I am more relaxed and we make magic happen. Even driving of with a vague idea of which direction and finding new places makes wonders, and the reward afterwards is even greater.
