Black & White tones are great for creating a beautiful seascape photo. A powerful tool in ON1 Photo RAW 2018 allows for greater control and creativity in your photo editing. Specifically, Luminosity Masks allow you to selectively edit and apply effects to just the tones you want. If it sounds complex it REALLY isn’t. In fact, this technique will help your photo editing workflow become faster and more efficient. This works particularly well when editing landscape photos (or seascapes such as this one), and is perfect for enhancing a boring sky.
Classic darkroom looks are classic for a reason. They add mood and sophistication that you can’t get any other way and they’re a great finishing touch on your photo. Learn how to easily make 3 of the classic looks in this video.
Black and white is good for more than just black and white. You can also use it to create mood and contrast in your color photos. By using the right approach and paying attention to a few details, you can get awesome results that can’t be had any other way. This video shows you how.
As a wedding photographer capturing unique images is what it’s all about on the creative side. Whether it’s a unique location, a great looking couple, or just being at the right place at the right time- it all helps!
I was honored to be a part of the Spring into Summer campaign and jumped on board with a fun video on High School Seniors. As we head into summer, Senior season is in full swing for a lot of studios. At the beginning of the season I enjoy creating a few new presets, inspired by my first couple sessions. Styles and trends are always evolving as well as my mood can vary when I am editing the start of a new season of seniors.
It is important that we enjoy as much photography around the office as we can even if that means pretending to be excited about that special time of year again. You know, the (dreaded) company headshot day. Just mentioning the event would make you think everyone was taking a trip to the dentist and getting a couple teeth pulled. I’ll admit when you are used to being behind the camera (or computer for that matter) having to be the center of attention is not always high on everyone’s list. As the photographer, it is my job to make everyone feel comfortable and at ease. I assured the team that I would make this day as pain free, quick and full of laughter as possible. With me behind the camera, entertainment is a given.
In this Short Clip, I’ll show you how to transform a photo into a power black and white photo using ON1 Photo RAW. I’ll also explain the key differences between the Black & White adjustment panel in Develop vs. the Black & White filter in Effects.
Adding a black & white matte can really change the mood of an image giving it that extra finish that is needed. Creating a matte BW look is simple and once you have the steps it will lead you to creating many different types of matte looks even color ones.

Watch me convert a photo to black and white using ON1 Effects 10. I prefer to stack multiple filters and by using dynamic contrast with a vignette it gives the photo a more dramatic feel. Always remember to take advantage of the powerful masking tools and highlight your subject, like the chair in this scene. I hope you enjoy this short clip and find a good for to convert!
The ON1 B&W module has been integrated into ON1 Effects 10 (ON1 Photo 10). This way you have complete control over the conversion process and are able to add other filters like Dynamic Contrast to your B&W photos.
