Black and White

Me in B&W
My shutter clicks today were for a family member and will be part of a Christmas present so I can't share those - but I did turn the camera on myself for one shot.(the Christmas gift photos were pretty cool so I'll share them after the gift has been given.)
Earlier I was reading a article in Digital Photo Professional Magazine about doing black and white conversion in Photoshop - so I decided to do this shot in black an white. I used the HSL screen in Camera RAW(same thing as in Lightroom) and then did a few final tweaks in PS. I added tons of the Unsharp mask too. I add far more sharpening to my B&W's than I do to color photos - which I guess makes sense becase sharpening is all about contrast - as is black and white.....
