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.

Desaturation

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.
