Color Conversion Lens

Color Conversion Lens
Black and White image help?

No, this is not the ever present "I need a touch of color" question. When converting a color image B & W, my pictures, even if they have a great contrast, lack of it in the conversion. What happens? One example is the portrait. I can take a great portrait contrast, then convert to B & W. The theme looks "muddy." If possible, please tell me what I'm doing wrong. And, if you could suggest a form without using Photoshop CS3/CS2. All I have to work is PictureProject Software. I know this is not much, but if I had $ 600 to spend on photography, I would go for a nice lens, not a program. Thanks in advance.

You're not doing anything wrong. But, for better or worse, have to rely on the camera or software to get a good impression. I have a slightly different in the B & W conversion problem. Similar to that address others, but it is not same. I do not know your software, so I dont know how you can make the conversion B & W. In the worst case, all you can do is to desaturate the color and then play with the contrast. This will do absolutely nothing to quality B & W print. Here is the visible spectrum in color and grayscale after desaturation. The same conversion is after increasing the saturation and contrast, which has been suggested. http://picasaweb.google.com/Vance.Lear/BWConversion/photo?authkey=8TfUqoFNSic # 5137017600496705442 You can see the problem. The brain provides the brightness of color perception. You can check this with a light meter. This causes great discontent with digital B & W and is the reason why you hear that digital technology can not make good B & W. This is, of course, not true. If your camera as the mine, produce B & W conversions mimicking how the brain interprets color and brightness are in luck. If not, you have to do in post processing. There are several types of conversions that you and all of them require access to the color channels. The one I think I would be looking for is called "Perceptual Luminance Conversion." This is a picture of how the various B & W conversions, which act as film does, making the spectrum. Http: / / picasaweb.google.com / Vance.Lear / BWConversion / photo? Authkey = 8TfUqoFNSic # 5137017634856443826 Not knowing that your software and what their capabilities are, I can not offer any advice, but these are the values you would use in CS3 to get something like a perceptual conversion. Red – Yellow Green% 23% -84 to 60% Cyan – Blues% 50 -% 10 to 51% Magentas # 5137017673511149506 http://picasaweb.google.com/Vance.Lear/BWConversion/photo?authkey=8TfUqoFNSic I'm not sure where you are getting, but there are free utilities out there that have a JPEG and do this kind of B & W conversion for you without PS and there are plenty Photoshop action to do the same. Others may be alterative Picassa, which does a good job or similar programs that can push a button and get conversion perceptual. I do not know anything about it. Vance
