Colour vs Black & White is not something that I have bothered with for a long time. For years now, I have worked exclusively in Colour, but Covid and being in lockdown has had me exploring my archive a little and thinking about the images that I make. So I have been experimenting recently with making Black & White images. To get me into thinking about B&W I have set my camera up differently so I see a B&W review image on the back of the camera. This way, I don’t see in colour when making an image. If you are interested all you have to do is set your camera to Raw+Jpeg and have the camera set to monochrome colour space, the original raw image stays in Colour and the jpeg is then B&W this then also shows the resulting image review in B&W. very helpful for blocking out the colour of the world. And just in case you don’t like the B&W image, you still have a colour image to use in the raw file.
This was made with my Nikon D850 and the little 28mm f.18G lens I got recently, which was the subject of my last post. Image imported via Photo Mechanic and Processed in DXO Photolab4 and the converted to B&W using the Nik SilverFX pro plugin.
