Black and White Photography Meetup

Black and White Photography Meetup

Sunday 29 January
Astoria Park - 12pm - 2 Hours
Introduction to Black and White Photography. What makes a good black and White shot? We will look at the contrast and using textures. How does the camera see the image and how do we create Black and White images in a camera or in post-production. We will look for some good examples and set some exercises. This is a more advanced course and assumes you understand the basics of photography and controlling your camera. Looking at the world in black and white requires the ability to see beyond color and look at the essence of light and tone. We will practice looking for scenes that are perfect for monochrome.
