The great black and white photographers of the past used to talk about seeing the world in black and white they werent referring to politics or some simple dichotomy of good and bad but rather literally seeing it in monochrome seeing it as it would appear once they processed the shot and had the black and white print in their hands. The key to learning how to see in black and white is understanding that there are two different ways to approach monochrome photography the first is to set out from the start to create a black and white image and do everything you can at the point you take it to make it as strong as possible. To determine when black and white is the best option in nature photography you need to learn to see your scene in black and white most beginner photographers arrive at their monochrome images by experimenting with post processing while this occasionally works shooting with black and white in mind results in far better images. In essence grayscale and black and white in terms of photography mean exactly the same thing however grayscale is a far more accurate term a truly black and white image would simply consist of two colors black and white grayscale images are created from black white and the entire scale of shades of gray grayscale vs monochrome. One of the simplest black and white photography tips for learning to see in tone is to buy either a monochrome viewing filter sometimes referred to as a black and white viewing filter or a pair of sunglasses with dark gray lenses
