What you'll learn in this black and white photography class:

Are you an admirer of vintage, black and white photography? Have you worked with black and white film in the past, but find yourself dissatisfied with the results you get using your digital camera?  Learn to visualize your world in black and white and produce striking images in black and white with this 3-week course.

In this course we will discuss a variety of compositional strategies, quality of light, and recommendations for postprocessing.  Hands-on shooting will supplement our conversations, and we will practice techniques including HDR, use of filters, and lighting for glamorous portraits. 

Finally, we examine some historical heavyweights of black and white photography, from Ansel Adams and Edward Weston to Henri Cartier-Bresson and Ezra Stoller, for inspiration.

Although PhotoUno has no obligation to provide make-up classes for students who can’t attend a class of the course they have signed up for, we will do our best to find a solution by:


1. Finding possible sections of the class for the student to attend in order to follow the sequence of the course. This option is free. This can be done up to two times for every course.


2. If we are unable to find a convenient date, we will offer the option of a private make up class that will be charged at a rate of $35 an hour.


PhotoUno is not obligated to grant student requests to switch courses.
