In this workshop, you will learn, by practice, that black-and-white photographic expression is simple to learn, but carries emotions that will make your photos timeless works of art. This workshop will introduce you to a new look that will stimulate your passion for photography and open doors to your creativity.


The basic principles of sensitometry and light, the perception of shades of gray versus colors, how to transmit emotions in pictures, shooting versus camera
settings, contrast as a key element of interpretation and of creativity, the possibilities of monochrome versus color and why express yourself in black
and white? You'll also see several techniques and settings (depending on your device) to create custom black and white images and increase their visual
impact. Viewing multiple images and technical demonstrations will introduce you to a very practical approach to photography and creativity. Black and white is
accessible to all to create original and creative images.
