In-depth B&W conversion video

Speaking of old friends, former Lightroom evangelist/PM George Jardine has posted a free 37-minute video that dives deeply into black & white conversion. He writes,

In this video, I start by taking you on a brief exploration of some of the various conversion techniques that we all used back before there were better controls for creating good black & white’s from raw data. And I did this because I think reviewing those tried-and-true Photoshop techniques, helps set the stage for a better understanding of black & white conversion in general.

Check out George’s site for details.

    John, thanks much for posting the link to George Jardine’s B&W conversion video. I remember that he is a superb and very professional narrator. One of my pet peeves is having to listen to someone repeatedly say, “What I’m gonna do is I’m gonna…” instead of simply “Let me…” Happily, George displays none of that peevishness. I don’t think he said, “Uh” even once during his 37-minute presentation. It is refreshing to learn from someone of his caliber!
