Colours into tones 2

11 Dec

This exercise is about putting the new conversion techniques and knowledge to the test by taking a picture and adjusting it as we are asked to.

We could choose between emphasising the haze in a landscape image, lightening the complexion in a portrait or having a garden pictures with light green tones.

I chose to take the second and third task.

First of is the garden picture showing the colour version, then the automatic conversion, then the conversion without adjustments and finally my version.

Now the second task comes with converting a portrait picture into b&w, and lightening the complexion without altering the other tones. That proved to be a little harder as the skin tones were also in the bushes behind my subject so that I had to darken that a little by decreasing the orange tone.
