Three Ways to Go Mono in RAW

TS-3xB WDo you prefer Black and white or Monochromatic? Whatever you choose to call it, taking away the colour from your photo will completely change it and often for the better.

You might be thinking that black and white is just that, black and white? So how can there be more than one way to do it and why would you want to even bother? Well just because mono images only contain shades of grey, that doesn’t stop us taking control them and that’s exactly what I’m going to show you in this video.

We’ll start with a quick and dirty way to change a colour image to black and white before moving on to a couple of methods which offer much more control and refinement. The best bit is, we’ll do it all in Adobe camera RAW (ACR) which means we’ll be working on the very best image possible in a non-destructive workflow which simply means you can change your mind at a later date.
