Take some B&W pictures

Do any of you often take pictures that you know you will process as Black and White? What techniques and ideas do you rely on that are different from colour photography?

Intention of the session is to meet up and share some ideas for capturing black and white images.

If you have something to share or want to learn come along to the session.

Before the meetup share some links to helpful information in the comments.

Hope to see you there

    Hi, took some time to get around to develop and then to scan the negatives. All part of the fun with film photography....

    Thanks Guy and everyone. It was lovely meeting you all and learn new techniques.
    I was talking with Guy today about creating a group on Facebook where we can share our photos and share ideas and events etc. I have created the group named Stockholm Photography. Please join the group and we can upload our event's photo there (today event named as B&W Pictures).
    Any more ideas and suggestions are welcome.
    Please join the group here

    Thanks to all who came out despite the weather. I had lots of fun and learned a lot (never start talking to Dutch people in the church when you are suppose to take pictures).

    B&W tip. I've set my camera to capture "RAW monochrome". When you check the rear screen you'll see a B&W image which is ideal to confirm composition, contrast, lighting etc but you still have a full colour image on your card to edit when you get home. Check your manuals to see if your cameras can do something similar.

    Hi Everyone.

    I hope you are all ready for tomorrow with batteries charged.

    We have 45 people due to attend so the event will be as much a social affair as a chance to take pictures together. 45 people is also considerably more than the capacity of the cafe so I propose that as we get groups of 4-8 people together they head out when ready.

    The weather probably won't be that great so we can return to the cafe to swap groups or just dry out.

    Has everyone been reading up and trying out B&W before the meetup? Post any tips here to share them

    See you tomorrow

    PS If you can't make it please change your rsvp status when you can

    Cannot come this time as I will be in Paris for the w-e. Will certainly take pictures and some of them will be processed in BW for sure; perhaps basis for discussion at one reprise of this workshop in the near future.
