Just skimming threw the threads and may have missed someting but one thing to remember is in digital what is black is black and white is white. Not much shadow detail. That is one reason they are still shooting film in Japan for weddings. And the cost of digital over there. Exposure is everything, photoshop is just a crutch i mean a tool to fine tune the images. Expose it right from the start and the rest is easy, sort of....... One of my pet peaves in the studio when i was training the photographers is they would just go hog wild shooting very loose and then come back later and fix it. Time wasted in front of the puter and not behind the camera shooting more. One tool next to the filters i find invaluable it a custom white balance for neutral color. If there is time to do it and the conditions are right i use a custom white balance. saves a lot of time sitting in front of that puter correcting images. I like old school BW pics but still need to expose it right the first time.
