Studying B&W photography can have an important effect on all your photographs. As you work in B&W, the power of light, form, line, mood, and simplicity of subject becomes clear.  

In our jam-packed three sessions, we will explore the key elements of B&W imagery—lighting (experimenting with low-key and high-key lighting), form and line, and contrast and tone. We will learn how to better see in B&W and how to convert color files to a full tonal range of B&W so that images are strong in composition and contrast.

We'll learn important elements of photography through discussion, review of master photographers’ work, practical hands-on lighting and composition exercises, and creative assignments (followed by friendly critique). We will also discuss printing techniques and have our work printed for the final class so that we can review what makes a good B&W print. All levels of photographers are welcome. 

Instructor:  Meredith Mullins is an internationally exhibited photographer and winner of international photography competitions (including the Grand Concours Photo sur Paris, PX3 Competition, and Worldwide Gala Photo Awards). She is the author of the award-winning book “In a Paris Moment” and the Director of the International Fine Art Photography Competition.
