Event description

Description

In the beginning, every photograph produced was of a black and white world. Color film was invented and everything changed, just like Dorothy stepping out from Kansas into Munchkin Land! So, why over 80 years after the advent of color film, and with the digital technology of today, are photographers still drawn to taking black and white photographs?

This question will be addressed, and well as the roles that composition, lighting, and contrast play in the creation of a successful black and white image. Amanda Haddox and Ron Gaskins of Mountaineer Photo Excursions will bring their "Original 50 Shades of Gray" to WVSU-EDC as part of the Creators Program. Learn! Improve! Create!


This workshop is presented by Mountaineer Photo Excursions
