About This Class

In this comprehensive master class you will learn three powerful methods in Lightroom to create Black and White images. Explore each of these methods to create dramatic Black and White visual statements.

Once you have converted your photography to Black and White, use the power of Lightroom to create toned and split toned photographs for richness and depth. Lightroom provides you with several different tools to create rich tones in your photographs. I will guide you through all these processes, and then show you how to save your own custom presets.
