    "Black & White Photography"
    Dennis P. Kelley
    M.Photog., CPP

    Black and white photography has often been considered a medium with a rich history and a bright future. Many photographers regard it as the purest form of the art. But how is black and white different from color photography?

    Working in black and white can help you become a better photographer. It removes the distraction of color and lets you focus on the tone and contrast in your images. Shooting black and white is much more than just desaturating an image. Learning how to use a range of black and white conversion techniques to maximize the impact of how your images may very well be that extra element that has been missing from your work. Shooting in black and white can definitely shake up your approach to photography.

    Whether it be capturing the beauty and soul an individual, or capturing mood and atmosphere in landscapes... black and white is powerful and evocative. In this presentation, Dennis will guide you in creating images with storytelling and impact. From seeing the world in black and white to the digital darkroom, Dennis will push your creativity to a new level while working within the parameters of a world without color.
