I love Lightroom and wouldn’t edit without it. If I were on a budget and didn’t want to pay the monthly fee for Photoshop, I would have Lightroom and PSE so I could have the best of both worlds with presets and actions.
I also love B&W editing and I wanted to share my “Bold B&W” Lightroom preset set with you. This set has gorgeous bold B&W edits and optional added light that really makes your images pop.

CoffeeShop “Bold B&W” Lightroom Preset Tutorial:
This preset set does use the Radial filter to add light to the top center of your image. You might want to adjust it or even remove it.
After apply the preset (CoffeeShop Bold Drama B&W Extreme in this example), click on the radial filter menubar (1) and then click on the dot (2) on the image to open the settings.
If you want to remove the radial filter simply click on it (2) and press the delete key.
Adjust the placement (1), then the settings (2) and finally click Close (3).
