I’m very pleased to be able to share an excellent guest post from Dan Moughamian (@Colortrails) on creating and styling black & white photos in Lightroom 3. Many thanks to Dan for taking the time to create this and share it with us. Enjoy!


Before you go hiking up the trails or splashing in the water, it’s time to review our snow editing techniques! 🙂 Lightroom is a great tool for taking relatively flat light shots (like those after a snowstorm) and improving contrast, color, removing vignettes and creating and well-styled Black & White photo. Also creating that snowy day preset will save a lot of time, as chances are good all your other shots from that day (or most of them) require very similar treatment.
