Editing, Photoshop

I really love black and white images and often when I am shooting I am thinking ahead of which ones I want to convert to black & white. This decision is based on a few different factors with one of the most important ones being the light. So today I have created a video tutorial for you where I convert a portrait image that I shot with window light using Adobe Camera Raw (ACR) and Photoshop CC 2014. I completed almost the entire edit in ACR with the exception of a curves layer in Photoshop.  The tone curve panel in ACR has my favorite tools to use when I am converting to black & white.

What are your favorite tips for converting to black & white?
