SHOOTING IN B&W



Setting the camera picture mode to Monochrome forces one to look at shapes, contrasts, and values. Of course when you do that you print to black and white in camera but every once and awhile it's good to get back into that b&w thinking mode.




When shooting Tri-X or Plus-X you needed to know the characteristics of each emulsion and think ahead about what chemistry you were going to use to develop the film.


Now you check your monitor to control the "blinkies" Anything blinking is not going to draw ink from your cartridge.
