Black and white photography brings its own special quality to landscape and to photographing people. Digital black and white photography can be just as effective as film based and can really bring its own edge to an image. It is possible to create something really special by use of digital technology.
In this class, taught by professional photographer Mairi M Martin, you will learn how to improve your own black and white photography skills.
The differences between film based and digital black and white photography will be explored as will rules of composition within an image and the importance of aperture, shutter speed and ISO in creating strong black and white images. A range of well known black and white photographers work, such as Paul Strand and Gus Wylie are a source of inspiration.
