Join Bryan O'Neil Hughes for an in-depth discussion in this video Workflow, part of Lightroom and Photoshop: Black-and-White Photography.
- Okay we've covered a lot of ground in Lightroom…about how to walk a color image to black-and-white…and fine-tune it and what I'd like to do is…take an image, sort of from start to finish…and I chose this one here.…It's got a lot of problems.…This is exactly how it came off the camera.…I don't know if this is gonna be a good image.…I don't know if it's gonna be great for color or…black-and-white, so let's work with this one.…Let's take it into the Develop module…and the very first thing I'm gonna do…is go over here to the left…and see if any of these presets are gonna work.…
It's a great starting point.…Lightroom's got a few of them.…I can confirm that it looks better as black-and-white,…but even with my own presets,…not exactly what I'm looking for.…It doesn't surprise me, the image needs…a lot of tonal adjustment.…So now I'm gonna come over here to my basic module…and I'm gonna start with auto and it's a huge difference,…but it gives me a starting point.…And from here, maybe the exposure is a little hot…so I'm gonna take that down.…
