3 Great Ways to Create Black and White Photos in Lightroom by tutvid
This is a nice 15 minute tutorial on how to get great results when converting an image to black and white in Lightroom. Nathaniel Dodson from tutvid walks us through the three different techniques to try. I like this tutorial because he explains all of his creative choices and workflow decisions. This is very helpful because often times instructors offer concrete direction without ever really telling us why they're doing it. It can be confusing, limit creativity, and hinder the learning process.
I think beginners will find this tutorial especially helpful. It's fairly basic but detailed enough for you to actually learn something about Lightroom. So grab an image you've been interested in seeing in black and white and follow along.
