Black and white photography can be very moving. Creating a powerful photo usually requires more than just adjusting the saturation slider though. In this course I’ll explain how to create dramatic black and white images in Lightroom and Photoshop. First I’ll discuss B&W theory and what types of images make good candidates for black and white photography; then I’ll dive into into post processing to demonstrate my favorite methods for converting my photos from color to black and white.
This tutorial includes
• Six instructional videos • 180 B&W Lightroom presets • 35 B&W gradients • My Photoshop Workspace • Photoshop guide for quick reference.
What you’ll learn
• Black and White Theory • B&W Conversions in Lightroom • Double Processing using Smart Objects • B&W Conversions using Gradient Maps • B&W Complete Workflow • Installing Gradients • Installing Lightroom Presets
To get the most out of this tutorial, it is best to have a very basic knowledge of Lightroom and Photoshop. As long as you understand the basic interfaces you should be able to follow along just fine.
