054) B&W Photography Class

Black and white photographs make your photos stand out from common color photos especially in fine arts, architecture, portrait, and studio photography. With black and white photography, the focus is on shapes, patterns, contrast, lighting, and tonal range. The workshop will show you how to see in monochrome, and which scenes are most suitable for black and white.

Session Topics:

PART 1: We will cover traditional black and white film photography and why it still has its place in photography, methods to do digital black and white processing, and a short introduction to the zone system and applications (2 hours).

PART 2: Methods to convert digital photos into appealing B&W captures using standard software and specific filter software tools (2 hours).
