As a photographer, you know it’s super-important to have solid editing skills. The exact same shot can could be inspiring or be totally overlooked, all depending on the adjustments you make.
So you hone your editing skills carefully, getting a feel for what you like and what you don’t. You’ve got this down to a near science! But then…
…As you sort through your photos, you find a shot that you think would look incredible in black and white. Black and white processing can put the focus on a powerful expression or standout composition in a way that color just can’t.
So you try out the default black and white conversion, but the results are super-bland. You make your usual adjustments but, inexplicably, your would-be-amazing photo still falls totally flat. What gives?
Here’s the thing.
Editing in black and white requires a different approach from editing in color. When you take color out of the equation, you change the dynamics of the shot. That bright green bicycle – it’s now the exact same shade of grey as the wall behind it. You’re going to have to find new ways to make it pop.
Here’s the good news: Learning how to make your black and whites stand out – it doesn’t have to be hard. I’m going to show you, step-by-step, how to use Lightroom to produce stunning black and whites that’ll take you only minutes to create!

A subtle touch of sepia – that pretty golden-yellow tone we associate with old photos – can add elegance to your images. But when you rely on presets to add tones to your shots, you don’t have much control over the effect. I’ll show you a couple simple ways to create this effect yourself, so that you can choose exactly what colors you want to use, and how far you want to take them. Finally, it’s going to be easy for you to get the exact look you want!
When you’re editing in black and white, you need a different approach from when you’re editing in color. I’ll show you exactly what tools to use, and how to use them, to make sure your black and whites really grab your viewer’s attention.
Just because you’re shooting digital doesn’t mean you have to give up that grainy film aesthetic. I’ll show you the simple way to get that old-school look.
I’ll also show you how to get that popular, washed-out look without losing punch or oomph. You’ll be able to create photos that are dreamily faded, but still effective at grabbing your viewer’s attention and directing it where you want it to go.
Dodging and burning can make the difference between a shot your viewer glances over, and one that stays with them. Learn these essential skills, and pick up tips that make them even easier to apply to your photos.
Textured backgrounds, like leafy trees, can seriously distract from your subject. I’ll show simple techniques to selectively brighten and darken background colors, and tell you when to use them, to really help your subjects pop!
Night scenes can make for bold black and whites. But it’s easy to loose too much detail to the darkness. Learn how to subtly brighten night scenes to keep the detail and get the drama.
When you know what tools to use, it’s easy to take a black and white from totally bland to timelessly polished.
