The Black & White photography course program
This black and white photography course has 3 sessions. Session 1 and 3 will be online with the possibility to interact. Session 2 is a more practical session and will be in the city center of Rotterdam.
In the first session, you will be introduced to different types of black and white photography. Opening a dialogue for the potential of what can make a striking black and white image. We will look at the qualities and compositions that make great black and white photographs. You will be introduced to some of the finer settings in your camera that will help you see and think in black and white. The first session will prepare you for thinking in black and white. There will be a Q&A (question & answer) part also to make sure you are getting what you want from a black and white photograph. This session will also be given on the Elektroweg in Rotterdam.
In this session the practical information from the first session will be put into practice. A photo walk has been tailored, putting you into the right places and positions to help you see the potential for black and white photographs. A nice mix of styles and types of photographs will be on the agenda.
This final session will open a dialogue starting with a review of the images we took. Allowing conversation to discover the components of images that are successful and less successful. We will then use some of the images to edit in Lightroom. This introduction to Black and White photo editing will further guide you in the potential of black and white images. Here you will learn how to convert, stylize, and create an atmosphere in your black and white images. This session will also be given on the Elektroweg in Rotterdam.
