Black & White Photography in the Digital Age

There is an elegance, purity, and timelessness to a black and white photograph. Even in our digital age, the monochromatic image is as relevant and popular today as it was during the days of the traditional darkroom. In fact, in digital photography it is often included in our composition tools and used to simplify the chaos of our surroundings.

This is an all-encompassing class for digital black and white photography, which will explore all aspects of the image: from capture to print. Some topics covered include monochromatic and infrared capture, processes for image conversion in post-production, and fine-tuning black and white prints. By the end of class you will be able to create even more artful and skillful images and elevate your black and white photography to monochromatic perfection!
