Does anyone have a good workflow or guide for creating “dramatic” black & white images? I am not sure exactly how to describe this, so here are some pictures I found online which capture this look:
When I try to convert a RAW that I have processed with darktable to black & white, it often seems flat and doesn’t have the dramatic look that these photos have. I think part of this is I need to focus on having deep blacks in the image which provides more contrast than more of a gray look to the picture. I’d appreciate any guidance on how to do this, including any capture advice (in addition to post processing).
