Part One: October 8
An overview of styles and approaches to black and white portraiture

We will use appropriate lighting and color management tools
This is a great opportunity to work with studio lighting, refine your photographic style and understand fine-tuning of your black and white images so they sparkle and impress! You are encouraged to bring your camera, portrait lens and light meters, but it is not required.

Editing the image library for final selections for processing
Foundations of image editing for portraiture including managing white and black points, dynamic range and mid-tones
Converting color images to black and white. This will include Photoshop, Lightroom and Nik Silver Efex Pro 2
Fine tuning images after conversion including skin tones, light and shadow and tone transitions
