I shot an event what seems like a long time ago but it really wasn’t. I hated how the images came out in the end due to my lack of knowledge of lighting so color correction was a huge issue. I also knew that if they were converted to black and white they would look great. With my now greatly enhanced lighting knowledge I knew that I was shooting under tungsten lights so I white balanced for that. Then using my best friend forever, the histogram I color balanced everything and converted to black and white. I kicked up the contrast, darkened the shadows, lowered the whites and highlights and bumped the blacks up. Enjoy!

    The first picture is the best. The second one has those “light dots” on the left side of the man. They are distracting.

    • Those “light dots” are the lights being reflected off the drum kit behind him. I could go back and darken them but I’m lazy.
