Our good friend and great on-stage photographer Guy Prives, has recently started using BlackMagic to convert his color photographs to black and white.

We have to admit, he does it faster and easier we could have imagined:

Guy’s steps

These are the steps Guy took in Lightroom 5. He was kind enough to share with us even his tests…

As you can see, after a few trial-&-error steps, Guy used HC-Soft Bright Plus and then added 4 enhancements from the Additionals section and the Basic section.

That’s it…

We really wanted this to be a long, detailed post, but working with BlackMagic is so simple and quick…
