7 Mistakes discussed in the video:

  • Mistake #1: Converting a photo with a colorful atmosphere
  • Mistake #2: Flag images don’t work well as Black and White Photos
  • Mistake #3: Don’t take away the magic
  • Mistake #4: Convert a photo that have almost the same color all over the place
  • Mistake #5: Don’t convert to black and white sunsets or sunrises
  • Mistake #6: Just because it’s the middle of the day, not every photo will be perfect for a Black and White conversion
  • Mistake #7: Look for intimate compositions that are simple and that benefit from an interesting light or light pattern.
