Effective Photo Editing: Use Black and White
Converting Color Photos to Black and Whites
What's the attraction of black-and-white photography? It's simple: Black-and-white photos communicate by the way they're composed. Lighting and perspective also play vital roles with such photos. Lack of color doesn't keep them from inspiring the viewer.
In fact, many photographers shoot only in black and white because of the sheer amount of appreciation they receive. Black-and-white photographs look mostly surrealistic; their sharp light-dark contrast makes them surprisingly attractive.
- Want black and white when your photos are in color? Have them converted to black and white as shown below in the top group of conversions. Converting from color to black and white is very easy to do.
- Want to retain hints of color in black-and-white conversions? Ask your photo editor to do just that, as shown in the bottom group of photos.

Warren added a slight red tone to the first and third kimono and blue to the middle kimono to soften the overall effect in this converted black-and-white image.
