  • black & white milk

    hi
    i liked some black & white and the white seems just like milk

    well i tried to shoot milk with a gray card ,and with photoshop eyedropper tool to sample the white of the milk

    after to do a black and white i used a gradient map black and milk white

    but sadly it doesn't work so good , it doesn't look good on the monitor and in the print

    is there a tutorial to make a black and white "milk"

    Re: black & white milk

    Do you have any sample to show us? perhaps a before/after to get an idea of how the original looks like and what is it that you don't like about the after?

    It is important to mention that in any B/W conversion, you should do all your edits in rgb, local/global adjustments and such. Only when you are pleased with the outcome, that is when you take it to B/W, then you perform further adjustments that are pertaining only to B/W. Also, I am sure you are aware that milk is not white , so try not to sample areas in the milk where it is 255.255.255 , then, it will look really bad.

        Shoot a pic with gray card in frame close to subject.. same plane as subject... sample gray card in photoshop with gray dropper... save as a preset to load on other pictures with the same lighting setup

          Based on my previous experience with something similar, those pictures, specially the first one don't look like they were actually converted to B/W, you would have much larger latitude if you just keep the original in RGB n play around.

          Without seeing the source, it will be really hard to help, can you at least post a portion of the picture but big enough for us to play with.

                Perhaps this is not too difficult. And I would like to know how to achieve this nice shiny look on black and white pictures. Thanx in advance for your feedback.

                attached picture from google.
