This is a question about when you change things to B & W. But first, the background.
I've just started subscribing to 'Black & White Photography'. I know Rob subscribes, but I don't know who else.
In the latest issue (the first I've received), Australian based Peter Adams (http://www.peteradams.com/about.html), talks about shooting in B & W, and explains his reasons.
Now, I had always taken it as perceived wisdom that you shoot in colour and convert in PP. Didn't question it. It was just the way it was done. I even argued the point in a post on here in the past.
But why? That is the question.
If you are one of the Mono Mob and you shoot in colour and convert in PP - Why?
This is not something that I hope will just elicit a 'Why not?' response. But if that is indeed the answer, then so be it.
The gist of Adams' argument, to my understanding, is that it gets you 'into the zone' of making B & W images. And that there is no disadvantage in terms of the quality of the data you're capturing.
