LUT Profiles, the Secret Sauce for GREAT BW images!

 

In today’s lesson, I am going to show you how to hack Lightroom and Adobe Camera Raw into thinking you are working on a Black and White Photo, but you are really working in Color for Black and White.  Sounds pretty cool, huh?

This trick uses Lookup Table-based Profiles in ACR. Before you run and hide because that sounds awfully nerdy!  It’s a lot easier than you think!  I am going to show you how to make your own Lookup Table profiles that open up a lot more toning possibilities through your BW process in ACR and Lightroom.

With Lookup Table Profiles you get to alter the look of a RAW image WITHOUT sacrificing any of the sliders in the Raw program.  That means you will start with a certain look and you can use the sliders to edit the image further.  

Lookup Table Profiles have traditionally been used as “Camera Profiles” but when you change the way you think about them they can unlock some amazing results in ACR and Lightroom.  I will show you exactly how to do this today!
