In this week’s video tutorial we’ll look at creating dramatic, contrasty, fine art black and white architecture images using Adobe Photoshop and Nik Silver Efex. Having Nik Silver Efex isn’t necessary as the bulk of our work revolves around Photoshop, but I cover it here because I consider it to be the best tool for creating black and white images.

In the tutorial we’ll be talking about what to emphasize in your image and how to emphasize it along with swapping out skies and working very selectively with curves and channels based selections.

The tools we’ll be using in this tutorial are available in Nik Silver Efex 2 and across all versions of Photoshop CS.
