Quick B&W Conversion

This week we take a look at converting a color image into a B&W image.  There are so many ways to do a B&W conversion - today I focus on what I use in my daily workflow.  Because I have to edit a large volume of images after each wedding, I have developed a workflow that focuses on Results without the expense of tons of time.  I begin in Lightroom; however, after establishing the technique I duplicate it in Camera RAW and Photoshop CS3.  The last 3 seconds of the video got cut off - not sure why but it is just me thanking everyone and reminding you that I love comments and email with any question.  I hope you Monday is going well, I have some cleaning to do in the studio for next week's wedding so I am gonna split - take care and I will see ya tomorrow.

I am enjoying your videos on Viddler and the tutorials are awesome and very helpful for a person like me that is inspiring to be a photographer. Where are the links to the wow presets for lightroom?

Keep up the awesome work! Can't wait to see more video. Will you ever do a video on how to put together a finish product once your photos are printed?

Do you mean an album or physical prints that would be framed/matted?
