Week 7: Before/After ... "B&W Conversion"

September 16, 2015  •  2 Comments

I shot this photo last weekend knowing it would be a black and white conversion. The colorful wall and drapes took away from the beautiful light on the client's face. After cleaning up the color photo and brightening up the grandmother's face I used color channels in Photoshop to convert the image to black and white. By increasing the luminosity of the green channel I was able to separate Kami's dark hair from the wall. By increasing the luminosity of the orange channel the skin was lightened on both subjects.
