Black and White Processing Discussion Thread
10 months ago

Hi there,

Fellow forum member Kevin has been making a habit of posting amazing B&W images to the forum lately and I've mentioned that sometimes I would process differently than he does. So he wanted to see examples, and I'm glad to oblige. Note: I'm not sure whose style I like better RE conversion: maybe his. Also I think the images he's posted recently are stronger overall than the ones I'm going to post here, but that's ok -- this isn't a competition, but rather hopefully an interesting discussion.

So here's a couple black and white shots I have hanging out in my archive:

I look forward to your feedback on these images especially with regard to the B&W conversion and your own examples and comments about converting. I'll try to summarize how I go about it below, but I basically convert to black and white in Lightroom and use the color channel sliders as I please to get the look I want. I tend to go for higher contrast with B&W, Kevin's images are much more subtle - I like both styles.
