‘Shooting Black & White Photography’. A Crash Course Seminar…

© JohnClements_JCI243850280M

Having learned my craft creating and shooting monochrome film images, I retain the passion and appreciation for high quality black and white photography.

Some do not see the benefits, after all, we live in a colourfull world, and are bombarded constantly with high quality colour imagery. But are they falling victim to their own preconceptions?

Black and white photography is an art form in its own right. Demanding it’s own approach, requiring a different ‘mindset’ to create above average images on a consistent basis.

When done badly, black and white results put people off. But when done well, it simply raises itself to a level of art, often respected more than colour photography is today?

This ‘Crash Course Seminar’ is a wonderful mix of practical elements and explanations. It simply provides a clear, motivating roadmap, and enables those with a passion or possible interest to concentrate and achieve most in minimum time.

In short, a unique and inspiring event from the conceiving of our images, step – by – step tools and techniques at the capture stage, and into post capture, then output.

In short, a unique and inspiring event for anyone with a passion for photography. It is ideal for takling subjects from landscapes, through architecture, to portraits to name just some genres.
This day covers lots of useful ground for high quality monochrome photography, delivered in our easy to follow and hopefully inspiring style:
