Serge Ramelli Reveals His Lightroom Secrets for Creating Dramatic B&W Photographs (VIDEO)

Serge Ramelli is an accomplished Paris-based photographer known for dramatic black-and-white imagery, and in the video below he reveals how he uses Lightroom to give photographs a powerful and distinctive look.

Ramelli says the key to his work is being consistent from one image to the next, and he explains how to employ presets in Lightroom to accomplish that task. He then demonstrates how he used the Radial tool for quick adjustments to clarity and exposure while delicately enhancing water reflections and a drab sky.
