In this workshop, Master Photographer Harold Davis guides participants in both aspects of the digital black & white process: shooting and post-processing.
Workshop participants will take advantage of several San Francisco Bay area locations with black and white in mind, with field destinations to be determined depending on weather and group predilections. Possibilities include the Point Richmond, Cable Car Museum, Fort Point, Marin Headlands and the Golden Gate Bridge.
In the classroom, hands-on guidance will explain techniques for extending dynamic range, monochromatic conversion methods, and best practices where the two technologies intersect.
Harold Davis is the author of Creative Black & White (Wiley) and Monochromatic HDR Photography (Focal Press). His prints have been called “hauntingly beautiful” by Fine Art Printer Magazine. Join Harold and a like-minded group of photographers for this hands-on workshop!
