    Hi, I´ve been working (STRUGGLING) with some portraits of my kids, and man, what I think its difficult to find the right edit with lightroom, I want some white and some black in there without blowing out the highlights or get the muddy feeling. I realise that lightning is the key factor, and next time I will pay more attention to how they sit next to the window, maybe I could hang some textiles in front of window to make the light softer. here Im using a 5600K light on top of their head.

    But share your processing way if you want to, There are some ways to make b&w in lightroom, I choosed to keep it in colormode here and just set all the saturation bars to 0%, and then I played with light and shadow, I thougt that it saved me more tones in the skin.

    but still Im not satiesfied, I have send these to the lab and will get my hands on them soon, Im afraid that they are gonna be too dark for my taste, we´ll see...
