Analogue and digital black and white photography
What is special about photographing in black and white? What technology do you need? How do you achieve certain effects? What do you need for a photo laboratory in your own cellar? Or isn’t digital black and white photography better? At least more practical?
In addition to the particularities of seeing in black and white, Knut Gielen uses this workshop to explain the technical foundations, present famous photographers, and give participants practical exercises on how to use their analogue or digital Leica today, to photograph in black and white.
- Technical foundations: film, developing and laboratory techniques explained in brief
- The impact of colour filters on black and white photos
- Ansel Adams’ Zone System
- Practical exercises: photographing with film, developing film and creating contact sheets for the selection of images
- Thinking picture composition in black and white
- Famous photographers
- Practical exercises: black and white photography with the digital camera, portraits and architecture
- Development and filter effects with Adobe Lightroom
