The Essentials of Black and White Image Editing


Timeless Black and White - The foundations of photography

When we think of fine art black and white photography we often think of Ansel Adams or Michael Kenna with their expressive photographs oozing with tonality. There is something timeless about a beautifully created black and white image, and black and white photography has certainly experienced a renaissance over previous years.

​​​​Virtually all of the photographers we meet have wanted, at some stage, to make great monochrome images and this is why we have designed this workshop. There are so many ways to approach black and white that it has almost become confusing wondering where to begin.

​​In this workshop we break the journey down into individual steps that are easy to follow and they will enable you to transform your black and white Images.
