I've always loved black + white photos.
& over the past year, I've created (& perfected) a few black + white presets that I just love. Many of you have asked for me to sell them, so here they are! They're super versatile and easy to tweak in any lighting situation.
Backlit, direct light, artificial light, etc - these will work on them all.
I love the classic vibes this preset gives. The muted highlights + faded shadows remind me of an old school black + white newspaper. This was the first b+w preset I created and used it exclusively for a long time. It's super versatile and works on pretty much any lighting situation. Depending on your shooting style, the only tweak that should be needed is adjusting the exposure.
This black + white has some good, honest grit to it. I've added sharpness, grain, deep shadows, and slightly muted highlights. It's super versatile and tends to save the day on poorly exposed images (hey, we're human). I just love the mood this one has.
This is my most used black + white preset. I've added creamy highlights, shadows, and tinted it to perfection. This preset really sets itself apart as far as black + white's go, giving your clients something unique.
I created this preset specifically for artificial (faux) lighting and helps me streamline my wedding reception photos. i.e. : flash, ambient, candlelit, sparklers, etc. I've adjusted a killer blend of exposure, contrast, sharpness, and tone curve to handle most any situation - even if you're over/under exposed.
