Welcome back photographer Andie Smith
I LOVE LOVE LOVE black and white images. When I was in school, we shot with black and white film (Ilford for me please!) and processed our images in the darkroom (I miss the smell of stop bath). I had full control how my images turned out, from the contrast to the tones of the black and whites (I love warm paper!).
When I started playing with Lightroom during the 1st beta testing, I was sold with the control I had (yes, I’m a little bit of a control freak… I admit it!). I could make beautiful custom black and white images from my computer!!
How? Split Toning!
1. Edit your image in color to your liking, then convert to Greyscale
2. Scroll down the right hand side to Split Toning
3. Click on the box next to Shadows and choose a color. I went with a light tan to get a warm tone. also slide the % slider on the bottom of the box for the strength of the tone.
4. Play around with other colors… like blue!
5. You can go crazy and play with the Highlights too…
I’m not morning the loss of the darkroom, and film as much any more, thanks to Lightroom.
