One of the things that I want to do at this juncture with this project is apply…a little bit of a color, toning, and contrast look to the image.…The reason why I want to do that is traditionally black-and-white images aren't…truly neutral. Rather they are little bit cool or a little bit warm, and so I…want to push this image one way or another and sometimes it's a nice way to…subtly modify the overall look of the image.…In order to do that, what I am first going to do is go ahead and click on…the Color Balance icon here in the Adjustments panel to create a Color…Balance adjustment layer.…
Next in order to illustrate something, I am going to really exaggerate my reds…and my yellows, so I have just a ton of colors sitting on top of the image.…The problem with this is that it's not really mapped into the overall tone of the photograph.…Well, there are a couple of steps that we can take in order to get this to look…a little bit better.…Here is what we can do.…Here we are going to go ahead and click in the Channels panel. Then we can hold…
