Better Black & White: Photoshop CC 2015

How To Create More Than a Standard Desaturation.

Photography, since the 1800s has been deep rooted by the presence of black and white images, since Thomas Wedgwood utilized the camera obscura principle to create the idea of photography, it all started with black and white. It took us all the way until the 90s to fully understand this phenomena and today standing in a red room is something we would associate with a certain cuboid structure on a show hosted by Phillip Schofield.

Three Primary Methods To Achieving Better Black & White Images In Photoshop.

Gradient Maps

Great for adjusting just the shadows and the highlights only, you can add a lot more light and dark to your images and is brilliant for quick easy editing.

Desaturation

Does exactly what it says on the tin, Ctrl Shift & U and you instantly desaturate creating a really awesome vivid black and white effect.

Desaturation Plus Levels

After performing a desaturation, you can open up levels to really take control of the tones. By adjusting one of the three sliders ( Shadows, Mid Tones & Highlights ) you can add more contrast and really personalize your black and white images.
