Black and White Photography From Start to Finish
The best black and white photographs come from recognizing interesting light, distinctive shapes, and detailed textures in the world around us. By capturing these features in color, we can convert them to dramatic black and white images using photo editing software. In this course, we work in the field to capture the raw material we need to produce monochrome masterpieces. Then we use Adobe Lightroom Classic to adjust exposure and contrast, lighten and darken parts of the image to improve its visual impact, and apply special effects such as sepia toning and traditional borders. These techniques also work in Adobe Photoshop. Experience with the exposure controls on your camera and with Adobe Lightroom Classic are recommended.
