Whether you are a bw beginner or pro- this set is packed full of goodies.
It contains 21 main black & white presets plus 2 solar flares- one left and one right. Along with a few other little boosters like blacks, contrast, grain (for LR3), tints and exposure (for decreasing exposure).
RAW Black and White Presets for Lightroom (ACR coming soon!).
This set runs from bright to hazy to contrasty to dark&moody.
There is no one black and white preset fits any image. It really depends on the lighting, the focus, the exposure and colors in the scene.
Great care was taken when creating and tweaking these presets. Color channels, tone curve, contrast, blacks…fill light- all utilized for the best black and white results.
One thing I personally love is a nice moody bw from time to time. If scene and mood allows for this- add some blacks (aka inkd in my set) and/or decrease the exposure. You will be amazed at just what happens when you play with these 2 things.
Like haze? Then you will really like Heaven. It’s my hazy bw preset. And on the right image- it IS Heaven! No need to dash into Elements or Photoshop to add the haze- it’s right there!
My biggest tip for this set? Play.
I love black and white photography.
If you have ever peeked at my personal blog- then you’d see my love for it right there in black and white.
This set is basically all I use for black and white.
I play. Sometimes decreasing the exposure does amazing things. Or lifting the shadows in the tone curve. Or lessening the blacks OR pushing the blacks.
See what happens. It’s such a beautiful thing.
I’m a lifestyle photographer and capturing the everyday moments is really my ‘thang’. By using black and white and removing color I ADD emotion, feeling, mood, drama…sometimes color distracts us from what is really going on in an image.
Try it. Remove the color. What do you see?
Now let’s see what you get:
Plus a bonus B&W preset called NYC and this baby is good for both Raw and JPG.
