What black and white photography techniques are you going to learn: * You’re going to learn how to use a range of powerful flexible and non-destructive black and white conversion techniques. You’re will learn which are the most useful and powerful e.g. the Channel Mixer and Black and White tool when to use one technique rather than another and which techniques to avoid (and why). * You will learn how to evaluate the tonal range and tonal balance of an image and then how to make global and selective changes using adjustment layers selections masks and the Curves tool: four of the most powerful tools and techniques within Photoshop. * You’ll then learn how to use these tools and techniques to overcome some of the unique problems you’ll face when converting your portraits to black and white including how to delineate your subject from the background how to work with skin tones to maximise detail or smooth your subject’s skin and how to enhance your subject’s eyes. * You’ll learn how to add unique and complex tones that will really bring your black and white images to life. * You’re going to learn how to embed all of these tools and techniques into a flexible powerful and repeatable workflow. * But this isn’t just a course about post-production and Photoshop: each video will also enable you to develop the skills and give you black and white photography tips you need to create not only technically optimal black and white photographs but ones that are aesthetically striking too. * When you create a black and white image pressing the shutter is just the start.
