Re: Settings for Black & White photography

Before I read your question, I'd assumed that you were referring to shutter speeds and apertures! As a black and white film photographer, Photoshop settings never entered my mind. The most important thing to me is ensuring that the colours in the original map into a suitable-for-the-purpose set of grey values. Desaturating is a potential killer of black and white. With film, I use coloured filters to achieve my purpose. In the version of Photoshop I use (CS2) Channel Mixer does the same.

Here's a link to a short article of mine (expanded from the version that appeared in a local magazine).
