Black and White Conversions – Your Choice

Welcome to Big Mountain Photography

(Dashan Sheying –大山摄影)

Over the last three years of image processing, I’ve settled on three main approaches after the “Basic”… adjustments in Lightroom for B&W conversions: Photoshop or ON1 Photo RAW.  I’ve inserted three videos that will take you thru the image processing, step by step.  Try one approach and expand your arsenal.  Good luck.

Note: I finish off each B&W conversion with two artistic effects, i.e. a subtle vignette plus dodging the highlights and burning the shadows at low flow rates.

1) Photoshop Using “Calculations” and “B&W Adjustments Layer

2) ON1 Photo RAW – Develop Filter – B&W
