I really want to write more B&W tutorials and actions, and here is my newest creation, CoffeeShop ButterCream B&W. My husband actually picked this name out for me when he found me staring at my computer with complete naming frustration. I am completely out of names!
I love this tinted B&W. It looks amazing on portraits, still lifes and even landscapes. And best of all, it is really easy to achieve without the action
CoffeeShop ButterCream B&W Action UnWrapped Tutorial:
1. Open your image.
2. Add a Gradient Map adjustment layer, black to white. This will turn your image B&W.
3. Add a Brightness/Contrast adjustment layer and put the Brightness at 10 and the Contrast at 30.
4. Add a Gradient Map adjustment layer, dark brown (5d4c3b) to tan (edd1ad) and make the bottom location 90%. Dial the opacity of this layer 35%. This is your ButterCream tint layer.
5. Adjust layers to taste and use layer masks where needed.
