There are times where images with slide film (or color negative) don’t turn out the way you want, so converting them to monochrome is one way to change the look of a photo. I did some shots against the light to produce dramatic contrast and silhouettes, but in color they didn’t seem right.
So, I experimented with some of the presets in Lightroom and ended up with the following images (much better than the originals). They were shot with the Leica M7 and Fuji Velvia 50.
