Join Bryan O'Neil Hughes for an in-depth discussion in this video Why black and white?, part of Lightroom and Photoshop: Black-and-White Photography.
- The role of software in photography is really to help convey an emotion or an aesthetic to your images. To make certain that what you shot or what you share looks the way you want it to. And one of the best ways to do that is to convert an image to black and white. It's a subtractive process that removes distractions and really helps you focus on the content of the image. But it's also a very strong aesthetic. It can be a very soft, ethereal look or it could be a harsh, gritty look that brings a lot of attitude. You can change an image quite a bit by converting it to black and white.
So, we'll talk about all sorts of ways to bring your feelings into your photos in black and white conversion.
