Been shooting in B&W a lot lately. Some folks advocate for cameras like the Leica Monochrom because by shooting directly in grayscale they don't have to convert from the native color [apparently it hurts their sensibilities.] Well, there's a fairly direct way around that in Lightroom. Have I lately mentioned how amazing the digital workflow is over the old chemical routine? I mean, don't get me wrong, I loved and embraced film and all it entailed. But. Boy do I get what my eye saw more often now!
