    • Earl Gardner says:

      I usually have 3 cameras on me at a match and I’m toying with the idea of having 1 of them be a dedicated b&w camera. I like the idea of being committed to shooting b&w from the get go rather than doing it in post. It will force me to think a bit differently when shooting.

  2. Have to agree… More b&w!! Oh by the way…3 cameras…. Green eyed monster living at my house!!!

  3. Excellent! Thank you!
