Hi there,

Quick question about black and white photos. Is there any difference in the output between using the black and white setting on the camera vs. removing the color in Photoshop?

depends on the camera. Some dslrs offer much control on a color bias for b&w conversions. I prefer to shoot in color and convert in PS using the channel mixer and then use curves/levels for conrtast adjustment.

Yes, there can be quite a bit of difference, depending on how you do the conversion. Check out this tutorial:
