This guide is for everyone who loves black & white photography and all who loved the look of my noir Instagrams. Here's how to create the look.
Note: within the 'Drama' filter are several sub filters accessed through the Star. Drama 1 is ideal if you don't want an obvious HDR effect. Then tap the right arrow as usual to apply.
Note: Whatever sub filter you use here, make sure Grain is reduced to 0%, unless it's your preference.
Tap the arrow to move on. NOTE: make sure you're satisfied with the look you created so far, because if you undo changes after applying your effects, your photo will be reverted back to the original.
Next, Tilt-shift. You can skip this if you don't want the effect on your photo. But I normally use it on my signature effect.
Extras: You can furthermore edit your photo, but don't overdo it though.
TIP: You can also crop your image into the size you want after editing it. Though I suggest cropping BEFORE as guided. This is effective for full vignetting for noir photos.
So far, you now can create amazing & powerful Noir photos on your iDevice. Remember some great photos get ruined if you overdo :) I'm @ianography on Instagram. Happy Snapseeding!
