I am considering doing something in graduated b/w (or perhaps 'monochrome' is the correct term). Film in colour, then use software to convert it.
My dumb question today is: Can I assume that lighting for black and white is easier than for colour; and that using standard household light/lamps/torches are ok because the colours don't matter?
(I foolishly thought that colour footage in low light on a cheap cam would convert well; and remove the ugly colour effects of the low light. I was, of course, wrong. It simply converted the ugly random colurs into lots of ugly patches. )
In effect. I must follow the rules. I must use lights.
