Join Chris Orwig for an in-depth discussion in this video Converting the image to black and white, part of Photoshop CS5: Athletic Retouching Projects.
The interesting thing about photographing athletes is that they have such a…vibrance about them, and that is definitely true with kid athletes, like this…photograph of my daughter Annika swimming in a pool in Costa Rica.…She is diving in the pool looking straight at me with her eyes open.…I just love that expression and that smile.…A lot of times when you are doing photography of different types and you have…strong color shifts like you have here under the water, a lot of times you think…how can I work with that color?…Yet other times some of things that you can do is actually remove the color…which can change the overall context of the image, and it can kind of…transport it to another space or another place, and that's what I want to do…here with this image.…
Although I love these vibrant colors, I want to convert to black-and-white.…In order to do that, we will go ahead and click on our Adjustments Layer…icon for Black & White, which is this one here two triangles, one black, one white there.…
