Cool tread I will share.
I worked in a lab in Toronto from 89-95 doing exclusively B&W film so I can share some stuff I learned.
Post 95 I went digital and learned about what the digital medium is doing.
First off I do not know of a camera that captures images in Monochrome.
Too bad most shoot/all shoot rgb and mash the layers together.
So here is a way to give you more control.
This is just a shot I choose at random.

IN PS you can access each color channel that make up the image (your camera does this for each shot.
when you size the image and crop and sharpen the image and so on...
command 1. red 2. green and 3. blue will give you the image makeup for the color photo.
and you say I had an image scanned and it was CMYK those have been converted too.
anyway here is what it looks like.

Maybe not the best example some are more dramatic but you can see the changes in his coat and skin tones.
here is a photoshop mash (desaturation)
