Digital Imaging Tips by Dan Moughamian
Most photographers and photo buyers will tell you that they love black and white images. There’s just something about them that speaks to people in a different way.
This tutorial will show you some of the techniques you can use with the most powerful Black & White plugin available in my opinion, which is Silver Efex Pro 2 from Nik Software. It’s a great way to expand Photoshop’s capabilities without greatly expanding the learning curve (not to mention it will help you take your favorite shots and make them even better!).
Dan Moughamian is an experienced photographer and educator, and has worked
with Adobe Photoshop since the early 1990s. He also has extensive
experience with Photoshop Lightroom, Photoshop Elements, plugins from Nik
software, and many other digital imaging products. As a long-time member
of their testing programs, Dan has collaborated with Adobe Systems to help
enhance many of the core functions in Photoshop, Lightroom, and Elements.
As an educator, Dan’s focus is to help photographers at all levels get the
most from their digital workflows. Tips on raw editing, layer masking,
alpha channels, image adjustments, HDR photography, focus and lighting
effects, and perspective correction, are just a few examples of the topics
he covers. To learn more, you can visit Colortrails.com, and follow Dan on Twitter, and on Google Plus.
He is the Author of Adobe Digital Imaging HOW-TOs- 100 Essential Techniques for Photoshop CS5, Lightroom 3 and Camera RAW 6, and his work has been also been published in Photoshop User Magazine and Photo Techniques Magazine.
