Join Derrick Story for an in-depth discussion in this video Brushing with effects, part of Portrait Retouching with Aperture.
One of the fun things I like to do with the black and white and color monochrome…and sepia effects is use them in combination…with brushes to create this sort of mixed environment.…Now I started working on a shot here.…And this will be the edit two shot in the series.…Now go ahead and open it up here and I'll show you what I did.…So, you see that we have a lot…of boxes checked here. Including black and white.…So originally what I did is I, applied black and…white, and I did some adjustments in black and white.…
If I un-check the box You see that we have our basic color shot right here.…And then I check the box and you see that we have some…black-and-white and some color and what you can do with this is when…you apply black-and-white to the entire image, then go to the gear and choose…black-and-white away That's what I've done here, and then…you can work on little parts in the image. I'm just going to click.…
And, I'll show you some broad brush strokes so you can get the idea here.…I'm just clicking to bring back the color of the lavender.…
