Join Bryan O'Neil Hughes for an in-depth discussion in this video Shooting with black and white in mind, part of Lightroom and Photoshop: Black-and-White Photography.
- I mentioned that when you're shooting in black and white,…you wanna make sure that you think in black and white.…It might be tempting to put your camera in a mode…so that it records a black and white image,…but you absolutely don't wanna do that.…That color information is really important.…It's gonna be really important in the editing process,…but it's also entirely possible that you might decide…that you wanted a color image.…It's a lot easier to discard that information in software,…than in the camera,…so make sure you don't shoot in a black and white mode…in your camera.…
