Join award-winning fine art photographer Scott Bolendz for a crash course into the world of digital black and white photography. In this 3-hour workshop, students will review the core fundamentals of what makes a strong, compelling black and white image (with many examples!), explore different types of monochromatic photography, and also learn about the creative role and application of dodging and burning techniques, vignettes, textures, high contrast and soft-focus features.
This course is designed for users of both smartphone and digital cameras. Students will learn how to capture images directly in black and white on their smartphones with specialized apps, learn how to convert color images into monochrome, and also explore state of the art black and white photo editing software for both smartphone AND computer-based post-production workflows.
There will be live classroom demonstrations where students will have an opportunity to see their own images being processed during group learning experiences (students should bring several images each on a smartphone or thumb drive). There will be limited seating for this class, so be sure to sign up early and consider bringing a friend to receive discounted pricing.
