Monochrome photography can be fascinating and the techniques that you learn will stand you in good stead for all the other things you are likely to shoot.

Nina looks at a very broad range of topics in this fascinating ebook, starting off with how monochrome photography varies from colour, looking at the way monochrome was traditionally shot and how virtually every effect that was possible in the darkroom, is now possible either within the camera itself or at the time of post production.

The options for how to get a monochrome image are explored in depth. Nina looks at options within the camera settings, in addition to the other alternatives that post production can offer, using both Canon’s DPP and Photoshop Elements programs.

This ebook also looks at the key shooting techniques for monochrome images. These sections include metering, in addition to understanding the framing differences that need to happen. Nina also takes a look at the traditional photographic elements of shape, line, texture and form and explains why they are so important when shooting in monochrome and how to get each to reproduce correctly.
