I am so excited to post a new B&W Fine Art Action I call “Midnight B&W”. I have been seeing these intense B&W edits out there with dark shadows and bright mid-tones/lights and I love how they look. So this week I wrote my own custom action to get a similar effect. You can adjust the contrast of this action from a matte-effect to pure drama.
CoffeeShop “Midnight B&W” Photoshop/PSE Action Tutorial:
Open your image and run “Midnight B&W”.
When the Brightness/Contrast adjustment pops up adjust both sliders to taste. I wanted very bright whites and dark shadows.
This is the image after the action finishes running. You can adjust each layer to taste.
If you are working on a portrait and the eyes are too dark, click to select the “Add Light to Eyes” layer and use a soft white brush to add light back into the iris. You can also adjust the sliders on that Levels layer for more eye enhancement.
You can use the “Paint in Light” layer to add light to skin or highlight part of your image.
I hope you enjoy this new action!
