The PhotoShop Heretic: How to Process Your B & W Images in 6 Simple Steps
Popular Photography called me the Photoshop Heretic because my post-processing is so simple and unconventional. In fact, it is so simple that I was embarrassed to let anyone see me work! Everyone was talking about their special software, plug-ins, monitor calibration, layers, masks and elaborate processes that it made me feel like the village idiot. But eventually I came to my senses and realized that all that mattered were the results. My black and white processing typically involves Photoshop, a Wacom tablet and six tool/steps. No extra software, no plug-ins, no layers (I don’t know how to do them)…in six simple steps. I will demonstrate that a great image can be created with a very simple setup and procedure.
