Learning to see in black and white is a challenge in a world dominated by colour, but if you can master the basics you can convey really powerful emotions with your photography. Without the distraction of colour to wow your viewer you really on light, line, texture and expression in a much bigger way than in colour photography. That said an awareness of colour and its effect on the palette of grey, white and black is a one of the keys to success.

Black and White Photography in the City, London

Learning to see in black and white is a challenge in a world dominated by colour, but if you can master the basics you can convey really powerful emotions with your photography. Without the distraction of colour to wow your viewer you really on light, line, texture and expression in a much bigger way than in colour photography. That said an awareness of colour and its effect on the palette of grey, white and black is a one of the keys to success.

During this workshop we will explore some parts of London during the first half of the day, looking at how to make strong powerful images, using contrast and light to help guide the eye through your images as well as shoot a few challenges to get you thinking in shades of grey. 

Using images you captured in the morning, we will help you realise their black & white potential.  Demonstrations of a wide range of techniques will help you to explore and develop your images in your own way.  Also our collaboration with Fotospeed will enable you to print your favourite image of the day after guidance on post processing.

Some of the topics we expect to cover during the developing session in the afternoon will include:

Conversion from Colour to B&W using your editor and popular plug-ins

Making your RAW images appear like your Jpeg’s, especially for Fuji users!

Identifying the key elements of your image and isolating them

Working with exposure and contrast

High and Low Key treatments

Creative use of local adjustments including exposure, contrast and focus

Toning

Vignettes

Choosing a paper to match your image

Adjusting your image to the paper

Printing!

 

Although this will be day of learning the aim is to have fun while you learn a new technique.

You will need to bring with you a laptop with Lightroom and/or Photoshop.  We can also help you if you have CaptureOne, Affinity or Luminar.

Paul and Adrian will meet you at 9.30am (location to be confirmed), the workshop will finish at approximately 6.00pm.
