Black & White Conversion Technique With Adobe Photoshop
1. Open the file. Choose File --> Open --> Enter the image name.
2. Hold the Ctrl Key down and hit the + key a few times to zoom in the image to a size you need to work with.
3. Choose Layer --> New Adjustment Layer --> Hue/Saturation and set the Blending Mode to Color. (Figure 4 - A) Click OK.
4. Choose Layer --> New Adjustment Layer --> Hue/Saturation and leave the Blending Mode to Normal. Set the Saturation to -100 (Figure 1 - A). Click 'OK'. Now you have two Hue/Saturation Adjustment Layers.
5.  Double-click on the layer thumbnail of the bottom Hue/Saturation Adjustment Layer. (Figure 2 - A)
6. The 'Hue' slider is what makes it all happen-move it around to see how the conversion reacts. (Figure 3 - A) You can also boost the saturation to make the effect more drastic.
7. Adjust it to your liking, and you're done! Tweaking the 'Hue' slider results in as if the picture was taken with different color filters.
8. Save the image with a new file name.

want a better one?

I use this... RGB mode, adjusting saturation of 3 color channels...

I loike it. :-)

Suggestion: I'm not really into digital PPP and mas old school na B&W photographer ako. Try using colored filters for B&W. Sarap. :-D

Will post pag na-scan ko na mga peechures. hehehe. Gaganda ng mga shots niyo.

i haven't shot a lot of B&W pics but here goes:



i have to try your conversion technique.. ako kasi if ever i want to convert to B&W usually yung built-in conversion lang ng photoeditor ang ginagamit ko e.. hehe

Ewan ko kung OT ito pero can you guys give some tips kung paano mag-shoot ng Black-on-Black & White-on-White? Tipong Black yung background mo tapos yung subject mo black din & vise-versa.

Sa black on black, use rim-lighting on the subject (backlighting). Sa white on white naman, make it a point na ang light source mo ay naka-angle sa subject (angled key light) or make use of shadow ng subject (use hard light). General pointers ito but it will depend on your treatment (mood, tone, etc.). Importantly, use light to separate the foreground from the background. Try mo rin gamitin yung depth nung lens tsaka yung distance ng subject sa background. It might work. Try mo lang lahat.

Hope this helps, Pau.  :-)
