Description: In this three part digital workshop —open to photographers at all levels—the emphasis will be on mastering those photographic concepts and techniques essential to the creation of an image that more effectively expresses your vision.
By its very nature, black-and-white is an abstraction of reality. Alan will share how he “sees” in black-and-white, explore what makes a successful black-and-white image, and show you his favorite tips and techniques for converting your images to black-and-white and creating a tonally rich final image.
Using selected images from participants, Alan will talk you through the tools and techniques he uses to transform an image, translating the literal to something more personal and expressive. Think of it as an image “makeover.” You’ll learn how to post-process quickly and effectively by watching how he transforms a selection of participant images.
Snapshots are great, but most of us want to go deeper with our photography and share a feeling, an experience or a reaction. We want to tell a story. Let Alan take you step-by-step through how he “sees” photographically and how he approaches creating an image that expresses his personal vision.
