Photographers like Ansel Adams taught us to look differently at nature: not in terms of color, but instead emphasizing tone and contrast. Converting images to black-and-white reveals these hidden depths of composition and focus a viewer’s attention on forms, textures, and fabrics. In this course, Taz Tally teaches you how to use modern techniques to transform color images into majestic black-and-white landscapes, using the modern photographer’s favorite tool: Photoshop. Learn how to evaluate images with the Info tool, convert RGB color images using Photoshop’s time-saving black-and-white presets, and make more advanced adjustments with the black-and-white custom sliders, masks, and adjustment layers. Plus, learn finishing techniques, like sharpening, that will make your images look their best when it comes time to print.

Topics include:

  • Exploring different methods for creating grayscale images
  • Measuring grayscale values using the Histogram and Info panels
  • Adjusting highlights and shadows to improve brightness and contrast
  • Enhancing foreground-background separation
  • Creating contrast with masks
  • Enhancing contrast with gradient masks and clipping-masked curves
  • Sharpening with nondestructive tools
