I have read a lot of information on how to take black and white pictures lately and I have noticed that the photography community is divided in two on this topic. Some say that you should only take color pictures and then adjust them to be b&w (this allows you the option of leaving the picture in color or changing it.) And others say that you should take b&w if you want a b&w. I took the picture in color and then adjusted it tob&w by un-saturating it. Personally, I prefer this method because I don’t like to take all of the color out of the photo. It seems that if you take out all of the color then you are left with dull blacks and greys, but if you leave a little color (usually red) then you get rich blacks and detailed greys…maybe that’s just me. What is your experience with this?
Adjustments: hue, contrast, saturation, tone, temperature, vignette
Until next time, goodnight.
