This is another interior photography shot from my portfolio which is going to get the black and white conversion treatment.
This picture was taken for the architect. The kitchen is in a recently constructed private housing development in Southampton.
This could actually be a product shot for the kitchen supplier and installer, Lanzet.
I like the clinical modern feel of this image in colour, and think this will work well in black and white.
So here goes with another Nik Silver Efex Pro black and white conversion.
Firstly I select the image in Adobe Lightroom then right click, then select edit in Nik Silver Efex Pro. Then I have to select the image with Lightroom adjustments, then a new Tif file is created which is then opened in Nik Silver Efex Pro.
Apologies if you feel I am repeating myself but people are regularly visiting my way blog so I want to keep everyone in the picture (absolutely no pun intended there!).
As ever I look at the default preset then scroll down through my favourite presets. I want this image to accentuate the tones and sharpness within the image. Those bright brand new LED lights give a very crisp light, accentuated by all those modern materials.
Yes I really am a fan of buildings!,
So I ended up with the preset called Full Contrast and Structure. A particular favourite of mine. It does just what I want the preset to do.
Next is the filters. They really give different effects to interior photography shots. I chose the Yellow filter which carried on the good work of the preset.
And after that nothing.
Well I say nothing, I have to save the image back into Lightroom by clicking, erm save.
A vignette would not work with such subject matter, and I did not feel anything more was needed so another image in my black and white portfolio. And I like this one and am happy to have it in my black and white portfolio.
Make sure you pop back to my blog tomorrow to see another new black and white image, and thanks for reading this post today. Please contact me with any questions you may have via my website.
