Alter Color for better B/W HDR

(6 years ago)
There are some big advantages to shooting color when taking the images into a computer. The color allows you to make B/W contrast adjustments for each channel of red, green and blue along with their compliments cyan, magenta and yellow. This option will allow you to produce separations between colored objects in your subject that would not be possible with a grayscale (B/W) image. a grayscale image is one where the color data has been eliminated.I shoot in color so that I can control the outcome of B/W images both in terms of contrast and as a means of creating a convincing B/W rendition of colors. For example: In a photo of an apple tree, should the red apples appear darker or lighter than the leaves? In this case adjusting the red channel will allow the tones of the apple to separate lighter or darker. In my mind, I sense that the best rendition would be one in which the apples should appear darker than the leaves.In order to alter tonalities, you must have the image color data. Color is the key to producing contrast separation in black and white photography.The following HDR image is a base image for creating a dramatic effect in black and white.© JOHN NEELNote -  This can be accomplished with any color RGB image including HDR. I shoot mostly HDR these days.The following shows the result of using the Black and White Adjustment layer without any adjustments. The objects in the scene a yellow sign, a red brick wall and a blue sky are all rendered too close in[..]
