BLACK AND WHITE IMAGES

CREATING BLACK AND WHITE IMAGES WITH A DSLR

Photography, in its infancy, began with creating black and white images. Over the years, with a lot of help from Kodak, color became a mainstay in photography.

When shooting in color, the color itself becomes another element used to capture subjects and is sometimes the main compositional element. If you remove color, the use of tonality (grey tones from black to white) draws a viewer’s eye to an image.

During this five-week course, your instructor, Jerry Menenga, will give photographers an insight into creating black and white images when shooting with a DSLR camera. Learn how contrast, color, sub- ject isolation and shooting with a camera’s monotone (most cameras allow this) or black and white film simulation (some cameras allow this) can create compelling black and white imagery. We will also dis- cuss software editing in converting color images to black and white.
