About This Class


Are you a black and white photography lover? So am I! Its' unique timeless beauty and cinematic look are more popular now than ever.

I have created a series of 8 classes to teach you how to convert your favourite images to b&w like a pro with Photoshop.

This is the 2nd class from the series of 8 - "Photography Classics: Artistic Black and White Conversion Techniques in Photoshop." In this class I will walk you through a complete black and white conversion process in Photoshop including retouch, targeted tonal adjustments and final touches.

Download the original version of the image and follow me along!

  • You will be working in "non-destructive" way with Adjustment Layers to massively speed up the editing work;
  • You will master the most effective and flexible Photoshop tool in terms of photo editing - The Curves Tool
  • You will learn how to blend multiple adjustments in a seamless way in one image with help of masking techniques
  • You will learn how to evaluate tonal range in your images with the Histogram Tool and you will be using it as a basic reference in your workflow
  • You will achieve stunning results with your images and develop your artistic skills

See you in the class! :)

Good class, I sped up the video a bit due to her accent. It actually helped me to follow a lot better than watching it at normal speed. Wish I had just watched this class instead of the 1/8 photography classics which mainly reviewed a lot of what not to do instead of just giving a quick overview of what not to do, and then showing her techniques. Im sure the previous class would be helpful for people who don't understand RGB lighting and such, but it was a bit redundant for me.
