Photoshop Week Part 1: Black and White

I mentioned a few weeks ago that I would like to replicate the feel of black and white film using digital techniques. After a bit of tooling around in Photoshop I found some settings and procudures I liked. These images are all digital, yet really recreate the nice contrasty, grainy look of 400 speed black and white film. I especially like the effect on portraits, it somehow brings out more humanity than the crisp reality of the straight digital image.
