One of my favorite styles of photography is black and white. And a great black and white photo doesn’t just mean ya strip out the color. Rather, the different color values are going to influence black and white conversion. So, you might have a rich blue sky that becomes a darker area in the black and white photo, and golden yellows that become brighter.
It’s important that you manually convert this image rather than just stripping the color away with a saturation slider. Now, we’re going to take a look at two different types of examples. First, we’ll take a look at an architectural example, and you’ll see how we can use classic black and white imagery to really emphasize key details.
