Over the weekend we were  sent a promotion piece from Amazon.com written by photographer Harold Davis. It concerns taking advantage of the relatively underused LAB color space.

If you know about LAB color, you probably think of it as an alternative scheme to RGB and CMYK color. You may know that people use LAB color for sensitive color corrections and to create special color effects. You may also know that Photoshop uses LAB color for its internal color calculations. What you may not know is that you can use LAB color to create interesting black and white effects.

The easily followed directions allow pro and amateur photographers alike to access an interesting tool for striking Black and White effects.

You can see the step by step instructions at: LAB color for Black and White

You should also check the Harold Davis blog and pick the tag “monochrome” for some very nice Black and White imagery he has created.
