A Black And White Conversion By The Inimitable Matt Kloskowski – His Workflow. And Two Friends On 500px.
I was privileged to do some shooting with Lightroom and Photoshop Guy Matt Kloskowski last year in New England. The good news is that he is a really good photographer. The better news is that he is a really good guy (it is always gratifying to discover someone you admire is worthy of that admiration). And part of the workshop Matt was assisting with in New England included his instructing on Lightroom and Photoshop (check out Bill Fortney’s His Light Ministries workshops by clicking here. Matt in fact is going to be on Bill’s next Southwest Tour in November) . Folks, he knows Lightroom and Photoshop. So, today it is a treat to advise you that Matt has posted a nice little video on doing a black and white conversion of a really nice image of his.
I believe it is incredibly valuable to see the workflow of others, especially when you can view it start to finish. In this case you get to see how Matt uses Lightroom and Photoshop to make a nice image much better. Then Matt converts it to black and white, something he admits is not his usual practice. It makes for a very nice completed photo. Now, even if you are really comfortable in Lightroom and Photoshop, there are some little tips and tricks that make Matt’s workflow worth watching. I urge you to click here to watch and learn. As I said, Matt knows Lightroom and Photoshop.
Then, you know I still go regularly to 500px. There are some gorgeous images there, and it is a great place to spend some time getting inspired. And you know how good my friends Richard Small and Raymond Jabola are as true shooters (true Nikon shooters, also). They both have been posting over on 500px, and it is no surprise that they are very, very popular already. I urge you to click here to check out Raymond’s images there, and then click here to see some of Richard’s great photos. You won’t be disappointed. I guarantee it.
