Join Richard Harrington for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating a black-and-white image, part of Learning Tiffen Dfx.
- I find that doing a good black and white conversion…outside of a photo tool is often quite hard.…Let's do this with a video click.…I'll select all these filters and remove them for right now.…And in the Filter category, in the Effects browser,…I'm just going to type in black and white.…There we go.…And I'll use the DFX method.…What I like about this here is the separate controls.…
Let's go to the DFX Interface…and take advantage of an actual filter.…In this case, a glass filter to emphasize different areas.…You'll see that using a filter will knock out…or change the intensity.…For example, the Green Filter has a huge impact…on how the leaves render.…While the Yellow Filter…affects some of the highlights in the ground.…Using these filters, you can dial in…the amount that you want.…
Putting additional contrast here, for example,…in the red area.…Then, using Brightness Contrasting Gamma,…dial in the specific black and white conversion…you're looking for.…This creates a very nice black and white…and it allows you to put additional emphasis.…
