Event description

Description

Over the years, with the advent of color film and then later digital imaging, many have feared that the days of black and white imagery were a thing of the past. Fear not, fine-art quality black and white pictures can still be captured and be as compelling as they always were.

Our class will start off with a review of the black and white photography of days past with an eye on what has and has not changed in approaching black and white compositions. If you have any experience with black and white film, you have memories of filters, and contrast, and of the zone system. While these tools may seem dated, they, in fact, are the foundation for how we are going to look at black and white in the digital world.

We will then focus (no pun intended, okay maybe) on the digital camera itself and its role in generating black and white captures. There will be some surprising revelations in this section, and ultimately you will come to realize that the digital camera may just be the ultimate black and white photographer's tool.

We will also explore color theory as it relates to creating black and white images. While this was a staple understanding back in the traditional black and white film days, it is still just as relevant today. The ability to see colors as they exist around you and visualize their rendering in grayscale will be a critical skill in achieving compelling black and white pieces.

Finally, we will discuss the pros and cons of black and white conversion in camera and in post-production. We'll review post-production tools that are ideal for working with black and white creations, including workflow and other features.
