In this tutorial I will give you some tips how to shoot and retouch a small room.

Sometime hotel rooms or interior design are small and even with a wide lens you cannot capture the entire room. Here is my workflow to get around that.

In this episode I will give you what I find is one of the greatest secret on good black and white Photography :

1. Do a very light contrast.

2. Use brush to dodge and burn and create the entire contrast locally instead of globally.

    I gave up when he started his adjustments. The banner ad is in the way and positioned so it's impossible to close.

    when i think of black and white i think of the photos found in a shoe box of my dead grandma…a bit over exposed and maybe a bit of bad shadow ,thats what i think makes a good modern black and white pic as well.

    Went to your mans Web site, and had a look, at his, B+W work.
    Basically, with subjects such as these,  (Strong Architecture) it's easy to create great looking, dramatic, work! I think, he, "Over does" the "Dodging and Burning" technique though, does NOT, look natural, and, just for effect!

    Hi Serge is it possible to name your brushes to keep on top of what changes you've got

    that looks horrible. Both versions. First version is amateurish and second version is just weird and pasty. Random painting with exposure like that is the weirdest thing I've heard for a while.

    Thanks for an interesting tutorial. Painting in areas of light and shadow can add drama to a picture – I agree with that. I'm not so sure about making the starting point a deliberately 'flat', low contrast image. I'd like to see some real world images that result from this technique.

    Hello Serge ! Ou plutôt bonjour Serge ! J'aime beaucoup cette vidéo, mais elle me laisse avec une grande interrogation et surtout un gros dilemme : étant un grand adepte du noir et blanc, sans utiliser de brushes, j'ai toujours eu du mal à regarder des photos retouchées comme sur le résultat final du tutoriel. Mon bémol est qu'on remarque tout de suite une photo retouchée, on sait directement, même s'il s'agit du travail d'un grand photographe, que quelque chose n'est pas naturel.

    Comme tu le dis très justement, il s'agit beaucoup plus de peinture sur photo, mais le soucis en numérique est que l'image est déjà très lisse et que jouer avec les brushes souligne l'aspect vraiment très froid et digital à l'image. C'est peut-être personnel, beaucoup de gens aiment ce style, mais ne trouves-tu pas qu'à force de retoucher nos photos, on finit par en perdre l'essence ? D'un point de vue esthétique.

    Your final image simply LOOKS like someone has 'painted' it with exposure, and that's a massive problem – light is not sporadic, or random, light has rules. Our eyes expect light to follow the rules, and when it doesn't, we tend to notice it very quickly. You cannot compare the way you guess where to place light to a formulaic manipulation of contrast within an image, such as what Lightroom uses. I agree that this method could be useful, if you used something other than intuition as your source of contrast.

    hi Serge, i'm a great fan of your tutorials.
    I'm a fan of HDR and would like to know where the photo was taken, to go there myself.
    Thanx.

    Sorry but the end result looked really amateurish and poor. There are better ways to make a proper black and white image.
