Color depicts Realty. Black & White is an interpretation of reality.
Black & White Photography creates a timeless quality in images. It is a creative choice focusing on contrast, texture, shape, form and quality of light. It can dramatically transform an image. Suitable for any genre... landscape, portrait, architectural, still life, and street photography... it is an art form worth exploring in your photography.
In this online workshop we will discuss visualizing your image, shooting in color with an eye towards black & white conversion. You will learn how to use your vision to create the image you desire through post-processing. Photoshop will be the main tool, used along with third party software programs like On1 and Nik Silver Efex.
Group Session 1 – This session will be a demonstration on how to create B&W images using Adobe Photoshop, which provides the most functionality. For current Lightroom users, this will be an excellent introduction to Photoshop. There are many techniques for creating beautiful B&W pictures. Every image is unique and therefore allows for a variety of ways to bring out its best B&W quality. We will explore several approaches utilizing a non-destructive method. Demonstrations include the use of smart objects, adjustment layers, masking, burning, dodging, gradients, blurs and much more.
Private Zoom Session (scheduled between the 2 group sessions) — Each student will leave the 1st session with the tools to convert one of their own images to B&W. This assignment is completed prior to your private session with Danielle. This private Zoom session is to be scheduled between the 2 Group Sessions and will provide individualized feedback and editing suggestions.
Group Session 2 - The last session will be a demonstration of third-party software, including On1, and Nik Silver Efex and how they can be used with Photoshop as well. We will share each student’s images as part of a final review.
