Today’s blog is mainly going to suggest you take a look at what Rob Sheppard wrote on the Nik Software blog, but I am going to show an example of why I feel you should check it out based on one of my photos.

In any endeavor, I believe you should learn from whatever possible source you can. For example today on the Nik Software blog, Rob Sheppard wrote a bit about getting better results with Silver Efex Pro 2. The main thing I learned from the entry; there is a lot more control with the color filters than I was aware of. This knowledge allowed me to get a photo of mine to look as I envisioned it.

Here is the original color image.

This is the image simply opened in Silver Efex Pro 2.

Finally, the image utilizing the control over the color filters Rob discussed and a few other minor edits.

If you’d love to see a few other reasons why I love Silver Efex Pro2, look at some black and white wildlife photos I’ve done.
