Creating a Black and White Photo
We start off with the most simple approach to creating a Black and White – desaturate. To Desaturate an image, make a Stamp Visible Layer by hitting Ctrl+Optn+Cmd+E and go to image-Adjustments–Desaturate or press Shift+Cmd+U. This is the fastest way to turn an image Black and White but lacks the control of other methods.
After we turn our image Black and White we apply a Field Blur to Draw more focus to the subject’s Face and top it off with a little Grain to make the blur a bit more realistic.
