I resolve to be more involved with this board again! I have learned so much by posting pics for cc, and I really want to improve both my shooting and my editing/pp skills!
I found an action I really like, called Splendor, for b & w conversions. Is it too much? I posted the SOOC too, for comparison. What would you do differently?
1. f/4, 1/320, ISO 400 (canon 100mm lens)
2.f/4, 1/250, ISO 400
Also...how do you get rid of mottled newborn skin? It's SO noticeable in the conversion! Please give me some CC. Thanks!
Hi there! Nice to see ya here again! Very cute pictures! The conversions are nice except the originals are a bit underexposed especially the second one. So when you convert them they are still underexposed. I'm not sure how to get rid of mottled newborn skin. Sorry can't help ya there.
Neat conversion. I don't usually use actions, but this is nice. I think the biggest thing on these is that you should try to edit the color version first, then convert to b&w, then you can tweak your conversion using curves to achieve the look you were going or.
Here is a quick example, let me know if you want me to take it down... I just did a screen layer and bumped curves, then a LAB conversion.
