I began this process by wondering about whether to take a color photograph and make it black and white with photo editing or to use a black and white photograph from the git-go. I did both. Let's compare, shall we?
1. Setting the Scene: kitchen sink
side lamp on
I have no idea of distance
using A (aperture priority) setting with an Aperture of 2.7
2. The same photo with color removed in photo editing
3. taken using the Black and White setting under "scene"
(not sure that I see much difference between taking a black and white photo and removing color)
4. Black and white subjects, but taken in color mode
Dial on A
+0 Exposure Compensation
5. Ditto on all except this was taken on black and white setting in Scene
Contrast bumped to +10
Edited to Add: Per Auntie's Suggestion
6. All of #5's info plus brightened in photo editing — it blew out the details a little too much.
(I don't like any of them. I do like the first photo of the woman floating in water here, though I didn't have a likely subject.)

Thanks to Donna at Cottage Days and Journeys for stretching my thinking. I'm going to let it snap back now. After all, my world is already pretty black and white.☺ Please find more black and white photography *here.*
