The latest editing software has made converting images to black and white a lot easier. In this video, professional photographer Steve Niedorf shows you how the process works. In Lightroom, he converts a color image of a tropical plant into a stunning black and white file in a few simple steps. First, he hits the black and white icon, which changes the entire color file to black and white. Next, he uses his favorite icon, Clarity, which adds dramatic contrast to the mid-range tones, and also adds depth. As a final touch, he makes minor adjustments in the blacks and whites. The entire editing process of converting images to black and white took him only two minutes.
