Black and White

3h30

You like black and white photography and you want to take beautiful monochromatic pictures? Accompanied by a professional photographer, the course will teach you when to use black and white photography and how to get the most out of this approach.

This course will develop your practical skills and historical knowledge on the topic. 

As a technique, it allows you to emphasise contrasts and details in a scene. It is an important tool for a photographer as it can make some elements come out even more. 

Your teacher will explain the different settings of your camera in order to optimise your b/w photographs and help you develop a unique style. A digital photo can be taken directly in b/w or be converted later using image software. The technique can have a real artistic impact in portraiture, landscapes, or architecture and allows the photographer to develop his own vision.

On a contextual note, black and white has played a fundamental role throughout the history of photography. In this course, you will also analyse the images of some of the biggest names in photography and understand how the black and white photographic style has served them so well: Ansel Adams, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Robert Doisneau, and Sebastião Salgado all worked in black and white.

 

This course will teach you to:

- Understand light and contrast

- Use the correct exposure for shadows and highlights

- Discover and optimize the black and white setting on your camera

 

At the end of the workshop, you are invited to share and discuss the pictures taken during your training in order to optimise your learning experience. This review, guided by the teacher, will give each participant a better understanding of their own work, as well as possibly inspire fellow trainees.

The workshop is composed of a theoretical part, practical training and a debriefing
