Color tinting black and white photos is often done for two reasons. First, we may want to color tint the image to give it a specific type of feel. For example, images with cooler color tints often will give us a calm relaxing feeling. On the other hand, pictures tinted with a warm color can exude action and excitement. Secondly, we may want to color tint our black and white photos so they adhere to an overall style or aesthetic for our work. Did you know you can color tint your B&W pictures using Lightroom?
In this tutorial, Scott Davenport demonstrates how to color tint black and white images using Lightroom Classic. Personally, it’s not something I do however, I’m beginning to think, to make my photography look unique – more my own – that I would try color tinting some select photos of mine.
Above all, I like Scott’s easy, laid back style and secondly, he does a nice job explaining the technique. Finally, I find it fun to experiment in post production.
