I have always loved the timelessness of black and white images. And the more I play with editing in black and white, the more I fall in love with it. In the past, I have relied on a couple of favorite LR presets for black and white conversions. One Willow has some beauties. I also really like some of the PS actions from Paint the Moon, like Grace and Ivy.
But lately I have just been doing manual adjustments in the tone curves and basic panels and using dodging and burning brushes.
I love the result. Here are a few images that I took this week and converted that way.
What's your favorite way to process black and whites?
Do you adore them like I do, or do you favor color images?
