See in black and white

By their na­ture wa­ter­falls are fairly monochro­matic sub­jects, es­pe­cially in win­ter, and with the strong con­trast be­tween high­lights and shad­ows they can make great can­di­dates for con­ver­sion to black and white. One way to check whether or not a scene has the po­ten­tial to work in mono is to set your D-SLR’s Pic­ture Con­trol to Black & White, while en­sur­ing that you’re shoot­ing in RAW,orRAW+JPEG mode. That way you’ll see a mono ver­sion of the shot when you re­view it on the cam­era’s rear screen, but all the colour in­for­ma­tion will be pre­served in the RAW file. If you only shoot in JPEG, the cam­era will ac­tu­ally process the shot in mono, and the colour will be lost for ever.
