Black & White Photography Workshop Weekend

£725 - Deposit: £175.00 Black & White Photography Workshop Weekend

Although this is a long weekend totally dedicated to digital Black + White photography, all our workshops feature Black + White techniques - both in camera and in image editing. Successful monochrome photography begins by learning to “see” in black and white, along with good camera technique and a tailored image processing workflow.  It’s easy to think that all you have to do to get a black & white photograph is to desaturate a colour digital image but you’d be left with a disappointingly flat image. As monochrome is such a popular style of photography, we are passionate about you acquiring the skills and techniques for this medium so that you can continue to practice this art for years to come.

The topics we cover include:

  • Visualisation and "seeing" in black & white
  • How form and shape influence your final black & white image
  • How to meter effectively for black & white
  • Why contrast becomes critical for the various tones in black & white
  • How to use neutral density filters for long exposures
  • Processing RAW files for digital black + white
  • Creating a tailored image processing workflow specifically for digital monochrome
  • Looking at classical monochrome compositions as well as minimalist photography

If you want to capture some unusual and striking images, we recommend joining us on our Fortress Island Photography Tour.  For seascapes we recommend our Big Tide Photography Tour which includes visiting some rather unique offshore towers.
