Levels: all levels.
B&W demands from the photographer more attention in the composition and more creativity. In color photography, the different colors can balance a composition, but in B&W many of those colors will have the same shade of gray. That’s why forms and textures are so important when you need to differentiate objects in an image. Not always color photography looks attractive in B&W.

“Landscape / Cityscape in Black and White”
$ —-
Level: all levels.
Learning the fundamental skills to make a Black and White image allows photographers to create some of the most stunning and imaginative images in their portfolios. While colors can be used to balance the composition in color photography, many of those colors result in the same shade of gray in black & white. The absence of color brings the viewer’s attention to the light and shadows in forms and textures; the photographer must focus on composition and see the scene creatively to make a successful B&W image. Sunrise/sunset demonstrates the dichotomy: while the golden lights of a reddish sunrise or sunset aren’t useful in B&W photography, the shadows produced by the low angle light of the sun and the backlighting that we can achieve at these moments make for captivating images in B&W. In both Landscape and Cityscape, B&W photography demands that we explore textures, shapes, shadows, and illuminations, which evolve throughout the day as the light changes. Even hard lights with shadows, geometric shapes, and sharp edges make for beautiful compositions of high contrast.
Photographers today have the option of editing the same photograph in color or B&W. While masters like Adams perfected their work in the darkroom using techniques of dodging and burning, the digital photographer’s success comes from learning how to use continually evolving software tools to achieve powerful visual results.
During our workshop, we’ll learn the basics of B&W digital photography, explore how to see the possibilities in a color image we plan to convert to a B&W image and discuss camera settings and composition to achieve best results. We will spend a few hours shooting and work with Adobe Lightroom* and Silver Efex Pro* to convert our standard pictures into successful B&W images. You will leave this full-day workshop with inspiring new insights and skills to create memorable B&W images.

“Travel the world with Natural Light”
$ —-

Many nature photographers view light as one of the most important features of an exceptional image. An everyday landscape with an exquisite light is often a more memorable photo than a breathtaking landscape without the benefit of interesting light! Yet, the more intriguing the light, the more challenging it may be to use it successfully in your photographs. The most interesting landscape photos are often those in which the light conditions are the most complex, such as sunsets and twilight, cloudy, rainy, misty weather and more.
Join acclaimed Argentinian nature photographer, teacher and documentary filmmaker Ossian Lindholm for an immersive two-day workshop to learn and practice using natural light in your travel and nature photography. Ossian leads photographic journeys in South America and teaches photography courses throughout the year, including workshops in the US at Maine Media.
During this two day workshop, we’ll learn and practice shooting in daylight, during sunset and twilight hours, as well as in morning light. On Saturday, Ossian will combine instruction on light, manual exposure, raw files, dynamic range, the lightmeter and the histogram with hands-on practice. On Sunday, we will shoot in the morning, then return to the classroom for discussion and critique.
You will leave the workshop with new photographic skills to capture those glorious but ephemeral light moments across the world and closer to home.
Level: Intermediate to Advanced.
Required Skills: Familiarity with your camera’s settings and functions, know how to shoot in manual mode and how to control depth of field.
