Black and White Tips

I have been asked several individuals how I take my Black and White photos. Well here is a tip on how I use the live view in the camera to give me a pre-visualization of the Black and White. This is for a Canon but other manufactures do the same thing but it may be called by a different name.

Set the Quality to Raw and Small JPG

Set Color Space to Adobe RGB

Set Picture Style to Monochrome

When you take a photo you will see a B/W representation on the LCD screen in Live View
