This is a photo of Shyna that I shot in the first weeks after purchasing the D7100. I did all kind of test or experimental shots to get used to the camera. The photo was not that good with colours and decided to change the image to black and white.
I couldn’t remove the distracting highlights or overexposed areas on the fur, that’s the point when I usually try out black and white and it often works well.
It’s not that black and white does remove highlights or overexposed areas, it’s just less noticeable once you apply black and white to the image.
Apart from that, I do really like black and white photos. In some cases it looks so much better than with colours. It’s worth to check out if the image works better in colour or black and white.
