Join Ben Long for an in-depth discussion in this video Using monochrome picture controls, part of Nikon D7000 Essential Training.
Earlier when we looked at Picture Controls, you saw this Monochrome Picture…Control and you may have thought, wow! That's great!…I really want to try black and white shooting, but I always have trouble…visualizing black and white and now I'll be able to just see it on the LCD…screen on the camera. And that's true.…When you shoot with a Monochrome picture control, you can see your results right…away, but still I really recommend that if you're interested in black and white…shooting, do not use the Monochrome picture control, and here's why?…Part of the artistry of black and white shooting comes from the way that you…convert your color image into black and white.…
There's no direct correspondence between any particular color in the world, and…any particular shade of gray, and the ability to choose how colors will convert…to gray is part of how you achieve a nice black and white image and one that…maybe fits the mood or the image that you have in your mind.…So it's much better to shoot color and do black and white conversion yourself.…
