Join Bryan O'Neil Hughes for an in-depth discussion in this video Black-and-white mixing and adding tone , part of Lightroom and Photoshop: Black-and-White Photography.
- Okay, so we've converted our color image…to black and white, and it's definitely…taken on a more dramatic look,…and for the most part, the exposure is balanced,…and things are looking pretty good,…but now we wanna play around with…those individual channels of color…and really make it a better looking black and white.…So if we come down here,…we see that we have a lot more sliders…than we're accustomed to…and that Lightroom speaks a different language.…It's much friendlier than, say, Photoshop.…You have familiar terms like Orange, Aqua,…but what's tricky here is figuring out…how those map to your black and white image…because we know certain things.…
The sky is probably blue,…so that's gonna make it darker or lighter,…but where purple and magenta factor in…really isn't as clear, so what I like to do here…is choose this on Image Control,…and this is really handy for a couple of different reasons.…It's easy to use.…I can just click on the sky.…I can pull it down, which will pull the Blue slider…to the left and make it darker, very, very, intuitive,…
