How do you know when to go Black and White or stay Color?

Jared Polin December 26, 2013 Comments Off

How many times have you gotten a certain photo while your editing and thought “wow, this would look great in black and white” only to find out that you love the color just as much?

See, there is no right or wrong answer to which way you should edit your image. The way I decide on Black and White or Color is based on feel. How that one image feels to me when I am editing it. If it just feels right in Black and White than thats what I go for.

In the case of the image in this video I fist felt that it was much stronger in color. Once I edited it Black and White I thought to myself that it just didn’t have that pop I was looking for. After looking at it more I started to like the Black and White more but I am still not sure.

This is one of those images where I like it in both color and black and white. They both have their positives but I am not sure one stands out more than the other.

What do you think, how do you decide when to go Black and White and or stay in Color?

Lightroom 5 Export Presets

Adam Lerner August 13, 2013 Comments Off

I’ve talked about exporting photos from Lightroom in the past, however in this video, I break it down in much more detail and show you guys how to create Export Presets. Export Presets are great for streamlining workflow so that you can consistently export photos with all of the settings you create for the export. This is great for exporting large quantities of files but can be helpful for even just exporting one at a time. That way, whenever you go to export your photos, you’ve already built presets that will save you time so that your photos are exported just the way you want them.

Importing Photos to Lightroom

Adam Lerner June 26, 2013 Comments Off

I almost always copy the contents of my memory cards to my hard drive and then sync the imported files and folders with Lightroom. Lightroom can manage this process, however after a big shoot, I’m often left with a lot of files and don’t want to tie-up Lightroom’s processing to import photos when I could be using that valuable time more efficiently. This means that I do the copy via the Finder and then sync the folder in Lightroom once the files are copied from the card.

Creating black and white conversions in Lightroom

Adam Lerner March 28, 2013 Comments Off

I love the look of black and white photography. I started with shooting black and white film. Tri-X mostly in the beginning. I came to see the world in that way with the gradations of tonal contrast and how the light would fall in shadow and highlight. Black and white is about contrast. Color information makes up the gradations of tones, reds are darker, yellows lighter.

Unless I’m specifically shooting black and white film, I shoot RAW. And I see in color. The great thing about shooting RAW is that you can create a digital negative in a multitude of ways without ever compromising the original image. There is so much information in a RAW color file.

Lightroom 4 Creative Editing

Adam Lerner September 26, 2012 Comments Off

Jared and I just returned from an amazing European tour of the UK and Germany. We got to visit Manchester, London, and Cologne and despite only having a few days in each location, we got to meet some amazing people, eat great food, drink delicious beer and see amazing sights. The trip was mostly business, so we didn’t have much time for sightseeing, but I did pop off a few frames whenever possible.
