Correct, mainly choosing the correct filter for the lens at the time of the shooting. There is still a lot of variety possible when post processing but you need to at least have a concept of what you are trying to portray. When I used to shoot B&W film, it was a different mindset, you had to look at the world and light differently to "see" monochrome. It wasn't a matter of going thru a bunch of color images seeing which might look interesting converted. I never would attempt to shoot color and B&W on the same outing, it's that different. Unfortunately these conversions look to be very pricy.
