Once we consider HDR and structure we have a tendency to consider actual property pictures, we additionally have a tendency to consider it in colour.
Listed below are a couple of methods you need to use Skylum’s Aurora HDR to edit your architectural pictures in black and white.
For this picture, I made a decision to start out with an Structure preset in Aurora. I used the Vivid Exterior Look to start out. What I found is that I needed to zero out the saturation first, then apply preset after which zero out the saturation once more. If I clicked on the preset first after which moved saturation to zero it left a few of the yellow and blue within the picture. That was it for this one.
On this subsequent picture, I went to the Experimental Mixed class. There are 4 black & white Seems in that group. I selected the Black & White Somber Look and made some changes from there. First I elevated the distinction to +33, decreased the small particulars from 100 to 45, elevated the whites to 100 after which elevated the HDR Denoise from 34 to 90.
The header picture was additionally created utilizing Aurora HDR, this time no presets. I decreased saturation to zero, elevated distinction, publicity, whites and decreased blacks somewhat. That’s it.
That is all private choice. I’m not a fan of HDR appears to be like however that doesn’t imply I can’t use the Aurora to create the look I need.
All photographs had been imported into Lightroom straightened, and spot elimination after which used Aurora HDR as a plug-in and clicked on Chromatic Aberration Discount earlier than creating HDR.
