Introduction to Black & White Photography
Douglas Dubler, who studied with Ansel Adams, will use a variety of arresting images to discuss what techniques to use so your photographs achieve rich blacks, stark whites, and all the greys in between. He will also demonstrate how to process your images with the free Nik Collection plug-in. The first session will include time on grounds to shoot, and the second will be an opportunity to review your work and discuss challenges and successes faced in the field. Digital SLR cameras preferred.
