Hello and welcome to another video where this time we are going to create a moody black and white portrait. The effect uses a Black and White preset which will give us a much better start position than Affinity’s. We also create a vignette which we can use to add lighting to the image. This method uses Adjustments and Live Filters so it will be fully adjustable when saved in layers as a .afphoto.
