Taking black & white photos

Thursday’s photography tip is on taking black & white photos.

During this weeks photography workshop class we learned the following:

There are two options you can use to create a B&W photo.

The first is to convert the image to B&W in post processing. This is the most common one and you have the benefit of keeping both the color version and the B&W version.

The second option, which we learned is a truer way of get a B&W photo is to set your camera to monochrome. With this setting your image will be taken in B&W so there is no post processing conversion needed. The down side is that you won’t have the color photo, but like the teacher said if your intent is to capture a B&W photo then you don’t need the color version.

This is just a tip/opinion, you can choose whatever option is best for you.

Try it out both ways and compare your results. It is all about experimenting.

Have a blessed day and lets go out and get creative!
