    I have a couple of local cemetaries that I frequent and I take along the following. Mamiya, 45mm, 150mm, red filter, yellow filter, tripod, cable. I always shoot black and white anyway but I do love the way that you can work on contrast and tonality without potentially drab and bland coloring getting in the way of the subject.

    I don't think B&W is a must, try some that are just desaturated a bit also, see what comes out best.

    Yeah, this way is better... you don't want to miss an opportunity to take a picture of your lifetime which looks a lot better in color.. you'll be quite annoyed :lol:
