As you know, there are a number of way to convert a photograph to black and white in Photoshop.
We are going to do it with Channel Mixer. I’m going to show you why, I believe this is the best method in Photoshop for most black and white conversions.
You can also use 3rd Party plugins like Macphun and Nik that produce excellent results too.
