Seeing in Black and White – 3 June

Feeling stuck in your photographic journey? Have you mastered the technical elements of photography, like how to set your exposure and focus? Are you in a creative rut, not knowing where to take your work next? If you are interested in black and white photography but don’t know how to start or are already working in black and white but want to improve, then this is the day for you.

The focus of this five-hour class is learning how to “see in black and white”. Many modern cameras can be set to display black and white on the rear screen during use. However, learning how to recognise good compositional elements, scenes or light is the real skill in black and white photography.

The four hours of practical exercises and walkabout photography aims to show you how to see interesting subjects for black and white photography before you even pick up your camera.

You will learn about how colour theory, shapes, texture, and contrast impact black and white photos and more; we will also discuss post processing during the 1-hour sit down lunch break and theory element of the class where you can get lunch.

The length of the day will be five hours in total: two hours shooting in the area to begin, followed by a one-hour break for lunch and review pictures, discuss post-processing and Q&A your photography problems. We will then finish up with two more hours shooting in the area to put it all into practice.

Venue: Duncairn, Duncairn Avenue, Belfast, Co Antrim BT14 6BP
Date: Saturday 3rd June
