Next, we're going to take a look at how we can modify the overall color and…tone of this photograph.…So far we have been working with the picture as it was captured directly out…of the camera, yet you know when I was making this image, though thinking…about creating a photograph which was perhaps a bit timeless or interesting or enduring.…I wanted it to be black and white with some sepia toning.…So let's start to take a look at how we can convert this image to black and white.…If we click in our topmost layer, we can then click on the adjustment layer icon…for Black & White, by doing that it gives us the ability to convert our image…to black and white and to control some of the Brightness values.…
This is especially important in people photography, because often you need to…increase the brightness of the reds to bring out a little bit more focus on the skin;…the yellows also obviously help as well.…Next we can work on the tonality of the shirt there, we could either darken or…brighten that. In my opinion I want to brighten this a little bit here.…
