Black and white for newborns

I read in a Sony ad yesterday that black and white often works for newborns.

I have never tried this and wondered if anyone has any strong views, for or against?

It can look better as it takes away the pinkish tint of the skin. When I convert to B&W I use the channel mixer and use red - 90, Green - 5, Blue - 5.
This seems to smooth the skin and removes any slight blemishes.

Looking for more material for your Blog Sociable4?

Do you think you should be writing a blog giving out newborn tips on a subject you claim to have no knowledge of?

In a previous thread you asked for info on studio flash damaging a newborns eyes as you were new to the game and you were unsure as to the possible dangers... Only to link to you blog later in the post.

Good Luck.

That website is full of cut and paste forum posts from here, there and everywhere else. Quite comical. Newborn photography tips contains very few Newborn Photographs!

The consensus seems to be that Flash Photography will have no effect on the babies apart from frying their optic nerve.
