My latest project has me converting several of my photos to black & white. It is an interesting endeavor. The process to make one photo look good as a black and white is not necessarily the same process for another. I’m learning quite a bit about how colors translate into black and white, as well as, my own personal tastes. Prior to taking history of photography classes I was not very interested in black and white photos, now I see something very appealing about them.
I thought I’d share some of my favorite conversions with you here. For those of you interested, my latest way to convert to black and white is to use Photoshop’s Black & White Adjustment layer, I then check out the numerous preset filters and then tweak from there. I have labeled the photo with the process/filter I used as a base for the conversion. Enjoy!
Until next time…
