in-camera toning

I wanted to see the results of the camera doing the actual toning vs. photoshop and I doing the work.
I personally like doing the work because I like the b/w's with more contrast…but it's nice to have it in-camera.

      I like the way you captured the subject and the foreground Lynn , Very nice! If you really want to see the actual result of your camera , you have to have a Gray card or something gray place on the subject , set your camera to auto , then take a one shot , after that copy what's in the settings of your camera and do it on Manual Mode, That would be your Patterned Setting on all your shot on that place regardless how many shot you make , you could see the actual toning and colors! By the way you could buy a 50% gray art paper on any Art Store! lol! thank you so much for sharing Lynn...
      Best regards ,

      For black and white photos I use photoshop, in my opinion they are better than with the camera set on black and white image.

      Like this shot very much, it is a great composition!

      I like the B/W version, although I prefer normally colour pictures. Great shot.

      it is practical in camera, but in software you can make as you wish more or less contrast and so on,from this set i like bw. the most.try to do bw your orchids, we 'll see the results.

      Very interesting to see the differences....all special in their own way. Great idea for a post, Lynn!

      Interesting, I didn't know cameras could do this on their own! But my hubby just informed me that "yes" mine will do it as well... hmmmmm, one more thing to try. I love b/w's, my thought is that the range here seems more limited than post processed (no true blacks or whites)... the color shot on the other hand has fabulous color!
