Black-and-white photography (180914P)

Friday 14 September 2018, 11:30 - 17:00 , London (Trafalgar Square)

Black-and-white practical dayBlackandwhite2

A super day out covering a diverse range of topics, from how to set up your EOS camera to produce great black-and-white images through to understanding framing for monochrome images. We take a look at why contrast is so important within black-and-white photography and how it can be controlled on the camera. We analyse why the photographic elements of line, shape, texture and form are so important for successful black-and-white images.

This course is run in two popular locations: Central London (starting from Trafalgar Square) and Bath. Both locations offer a wealth of subjects suitable for monochrome photography.

Learn how to:
– Shoot black-and-white images in-camera
– Evaluate black-and-white images
– Understand tonal range and how metering affects the tonal range you can capture
– See the best lighting for black-and-white photography
– Frame your shots for successful monochrome results
– Use and adapt the rule of thirds for black-and-white images
– Get the most out of your lenses
– Analyse the photographic elements

You will need:
Your camera with a standard kit lens fitted. A telephoto lens can be useful if you have one, though the standard kit lens would suffice if you prefer to keep the outfit small and light. If you have a polarising filter bring it with you too as it can be useful if the weather is fine.
