Have you ever tried black and white editing in Lightroom and then immediately reverted back to color because it looked kind of boring?

The good new is: It is not your fault! Without fine-tuning, Lightroom creates very dull black and white landscape photos. But with the help of these carefully crafted presets, you can achieve appealing black and white images with deep, rich blacks in a matter of seconds.

All five presets have been tested with 100+ images from different camera models to ensure the most universal use possible. They are also a great addition to my Signature Lightroom presets or the complete Lightroom workflow for professional black and white photography.

Download Options Before & After Examples

The presets work for a variety of different landscape types, but unfold their full power in coastal, forest and mountain landscapes with clouds, fog or overcast skies.

Please keep in mind that you still need to adjust the basic settings of each image. In particular, you’ll need to adjust the shadows, whites and exposure in the Basic panel of Lightroom. Afterwards, it's good to adjust the Black & White Mix. Use this panel to determine the level of greyscale brightness for different colors in the image (see #5 on this article by Adobe).
