Backlit Black and White

By popular demand, I’ll show you how I edit for mood and impact in B&W. It’s so important to remember that B&W is all about the light, not just a way to get around color issues. I chose this image because of the beautiful backlight, perfectly enhancing the mood of this blonde beauty. It’s an excellent foundation for a deep monotone look, using the light and tones to add drama and atmosphere.

    After having so many actions including black and white actions that I just never liked much, I am so glad that I finally have the tools and the knowledge to get a nice, rich black and white with the kind of contrast and tones that I love! Thank you so much Meg!

    I really liked how Meg explained what makes a great black and white photo in this edit then showed us how to make it amazingly dramatic. This is exactly what I’ve been needing to learn when dealing with my b/w images. Thank you, Meg!

    That was amazing. I love how simple Meg always makes everything, how she explains why she’s doing things, and explains when she’s doing things specifically due to her personal preference.
