Black & White Photography Courses

Black & White Photography Courses

Despite the fast progression of technology, black and white photography is still a very popular style, and many photographers desire to master the art of this medium. Simple and beautiful, black and white images often have more impact than colour images and require a different style of photography.

With our Black and White Photography Courses, you will discover the intensity and nuance of black and white photography. Focusing solely on light and shape, you will learn how to take your monochrome pictures to the next level. Our policy of teaching in small groups means you’ll receive individual attention to get the most out of this one day workshop.

BLACK & WHITE PHOTOGRAPHY COURSES - CONTENT

During this photography class, you will learn:

  • Tones – A discussion about light, colour, black and white and grey tones to develop your understanding
  • Subjects and composition – what makes a good black and white photograph? How to decide whether to use colour or monochrome?
  • Post-production – learn about black and white conversion and the different options in monochrome photography (sepia, bromoil, etc)
  • Software – explore different software and plugins for professional black and white conversion.

Level

A good understanding of basic exposure and your camera’s manual settings is advised.
