Lightroom Black and White Presets!

Black and white photos, when done right, are beautiful. Unlike color photos, black and white photography can express the raw emotion and timeless elegance of your photos better.

Black and white photography can also tell the story of your photos better. Again, unlike color photos, your viewers’ eyes are not distracted by all the different colors available to “see”.

Instead, your viewers are able to focus on the details, the rich subtle visual elements like the light, shadows, lines and more.

Lightroom Black and White Presets

Black and white photos are a lost art form. No more black and white film.

Everything is digital. And everything is shot in color.

Sure, you could easily convert your images to black and white simply by adjusting the saturation to zero.

Bland. Boring. Yuck!

But, you’re an artist. You want more than a plain, boring, black and white conversion.

Excellent black and white edits should convey an emotion or mood to tell the story of your image.  This can be achieved with this set of Lightroom black and white presets.

In fact, you won’t have to spend hours and hours to figure out how to create something to tell your story.

With over 30 black and white presets to choose from your bound to find “the one”.

Plus, you can easily adjust the settings for a perfect black and white edit… for your story.

I’ve taken my 30 years of photography experience and editing (via a darkroom and Photoshop/Lightroom) to develop 30 premium Lightroom black and white presets to help you be more artistic.

Now, you can take your black and white images to a whole new artistic level and achieve your creative vision.

Quick Start Guide

Easy to install. Even easier to use. Our Quick Start Guide will have you using our Lightroom black and white presets in 60 seconds or less!

Each step of the way we have supporting material to help you get the most out of our Lightroom presets: Quick Start Guide, Lightroom Preset Guide, Lightroom Pro Tutorials (included with monthly or yearly purchase) and more.

Precise Control

Any preset you apply to your images, whether ours or someone else’s, the edits applied are non-destructive.

In other words, they don’t damage the original file. You can easily remove the edits by resetting the “edit” settings or by applying a new preset.

This is great news because it also means you can adjust any edits applied for best results… for YOUR photo.

Any presets you apply are just that… “edits”.

Edits that were saved as a preset (for later use) were done based on the creative vision of the person doing the edits AND the photo they were applying them too.

Photos (and their histograms) are like snowflakes. No two are alike!

So, it makes sense that a preset made for one photo may not be perfect for another.

Sometimes you need to make adjustments until you’re happy with the results.  Which is super-duper easy to do!

If you’re new to Lightroom I’ll show you how to adjust any edits to get the results you want.

If you have some experience in Lightroom then you can use any of these Lightroom black and white presets as a starting point for your creative vision.

Looking For a New Creative Look?

Lightroom presets (in general) allow you to quickly apply previous edits to your photos… in 1 click!

However, don’t be deceived by the simplicity. Not all Lightroom black and white presets will work 100% of the time for all your photos.

No one else in the industry wants you to know this! I do.

Ever apply a pre-made preset that you purchased elsewhere (or from free Lightroom presets you downloaded) and wondered why they didn’t look good on your images?

I have an article that explains exactly what happens when applying Lightroom presets, and why it doesn’t always look good!

Plus, you’ll learn how to EXACTLY use these Lightroom black and white presets with the included (and exclusive) Lightroom preset guide and pro tutorials (with a subscription).

Classic Enhanced Preset Edits

Want just a classic black and white edit? No problem. This set of Lightroom black and white presets comes with a lot of “classic” type edits. As well as more creative type of black and white conversions.

Just like with any of our presets you can easily adjust them to your liking. And you could even save your adjustments as your own personal Lightroom black and white preset. Perfect when you’re shooting under the same conditions and want consistent edits.

Creating your own Lightroom black and white presets is easy. I’ll show you how to adjust and save your own edits (with the included Pro tutorial)!

Vintage Preset Edits

Another popular type of black and white edit is one that has an old-school or vintage look.  Varying techniques are used to create this type of look.

I’ve included a few black and white presets that provide that retro look; grain, faded matte effect, and more.

The included Lightroom Preset Guide will give you tips on how to adjust for your personal style.
