I was once told that you should always shoot in color because it captures the most information in one image. Then, you can always go back and edit your photos in black and white. While I generally agree with this idea, I also think it’s a nice experience to shoot solely in black and white from the point you put your eye to the viewfinder, until you are in post-processing.
By doing so, you can start training your eye to view the world in black and white. Shadows, textures, reflections, gradient, and angles become much more vivid in black and white, and can be somewhat hard to focus on when you’re used to shooting in color.
Tip: It’s best to shoot in black and white towards sunset, when shadows are heavier and there is a richer gradient of white, grey, and black.
Using the Samsung NX Mini you can shoot in black and white by applying the CLASSIC SMART FILTER. From here you can view and shoot all of your photos with minimal saturation, and really understand what your shot will look like from start to finish.
By taking photos in black and white you will slowly start to transform your perception and become more keen about the details that contribute to a good black and white photo. This is great practice for any photographer.
