    Default Black And White Issues

    Hi All...

    Was thinking about shooting some B&W images usin DSLR/Film SLR. So I've got a few Qns:

    1. What makes a good B&W image? I have heard about dynamic range and all, but any other pointers you all would care to give?

    2. What is a nice and easy B&W film? Have read about the various types, with different chemistry and all, but can make heads or tails of it..

    3. In PS, what is the best way to convert colour images to B&W images?

    Haha.. sorry so many questions with seemingly endless possibilties to answer..=)

    Reason I'm asking is cos im going down to melbourne at end of month and was recommended to shoot film in B&W...

    eh, i not very experienced lar.
    but then ilford FP4 and HP5 are good
    FP4 is ASA100
    while HP5 is ASA400 but can be pushed all the way to ASA3200 using microphen or ilfotec.
    yupz. thats my recomendation.
