Improve Your Black and White Photography Skills with this Online Course
The Art of Black and White Photography – David J Nightingale – $99
When colour photography was invented, you would have thought that black and white photography would have taken a back seat. In fact, if anything, black and white photography is more popular than ever and more often than not, my wedding photography clients ask for a selection of black and white images.
Not only is black and white effective for weddings, despite the lack of colour, but also for moody portraits, landscapes, commercial, product and macro photography…it all depends on the subject and what you are trying to portray.
However, black and white photography, or should I say good black and white photography, takes a lot more than a simple, straight conversion in Photoshop or other digital editing software. To make the make the image really stand out, there are a number of processes you can apply to the image to give it that edge.
The Art of Black and White Photography by David Nightingale is a really in-depth course that will leave you feeling confident and knowledgeable enough to create stunning black and white images every time.
