Howdy, gang. I’m back in the saddle and we’re kicking off this week with an Intermediate Level Lightroom Classic tutorial on converting to black and white using the New Profiles (and a whole lot more, because we go pretty much from start to finish, so I cover a lot of different techniques).

This is definitely for people who are already very familiar with Lightroom, because it goes at a quick pace, and I don’t explain every little thing because if you’re watching this video, you’d already know the beginner stuff. So, stick with me – we cover a lot of ground. :)

Hope you found that helpful. :)

Two more quick things: 

(1) I’ll be in the Cincinnati/Covington, KY area with my full-day Lightroom seminar on Monday, April 30th. If you’re up that way, come on out and spend the day with me learning Lightroom. Tickets here. 

(2) We’re getting close to the deadline to save $100 using the Photoshop World Conference Early Bird discount – it expires near the end of this month, so make sure you get your PSW tickets now and save the hundred bucks. Here’s the link with details and ticket info.

Here’s wishing you a better than average Monday!
