Sometimes I shoot black and white and sometimes I shoot in color. I love both, so my choice depends on subject, style, etc. Ninety percent of the time I know when I shoot. I often shoot in black and white mode but since I shoot raw the color remains in the file and can be brought up. If you shoot in tiff or jpeg you lose the color information in the file.
Today I was walking around Bushwick to shoot the murals, which is what I planned to post. Then came my conundrum. The first one I picked stymied me on whether it should be color or black and white. I planned color because the mural artist painted it in color but then in post I looked at it in black and white. So for the past half hour I have been going back and forth...black and white or color?
