The Art of Monochrome
Creative Landscape Photographic Workshop course by Image Seen.
Black and white photographs have a classic appeal which stand the test of time. Without the distraction of colour, we can introduce an air of mystery and atmosphere into our images, an interpretation of reality. A black-and-white image allows us to deconstruct a scene and to re-explore the basic elements of composition, lighting, tonal contrast, texture and form. Monochrome is also the perfect medium for creating stunning minimalist images.
With the use of graduated and neutral density filters along with superb editing software, the opportunities for creating beautiful monochrome landscape photographs are now endless. The key, as always, is getting it right in the camera in the first place.
The Jurassic coast of Dorset is the ideal base for our workshop with a wide variety of subject matter for black and white landscape photography. We will explore the capture of both wide landscapes and close up abstract photographs, how to add creative impact using filters and the use of long exposures to slow the passage of time.
Our workshop is aimed at those wishing to learn the art of 'seeing' the landscape in black and white. We will help you to visualise in mono and how to choose the best light and subjects for effective monochrome capture. We will also be looking at the art of composition and what makes a successful monochrome photograph.
There will be two image critique sessions over the course of the workshop during which both Andy and Sarah will give feedback and advice on some of the images you have captured. The workshop will conclude with a day of post production using Lightroom, Photoshop and SilverEfex Pro2 to bring to life your envisaged images.
You will need some of your own camera equipment.
