Below the course description (but before registration) will be a short explanation on how the class will run.
Join Hunt’s Photo Education for a new Multi-Session Series Class! In our Multi-Session Series, we will meet over the course of a number of weeks, generally at the same time each week. During that time, we will discuss a specific element of a topic and end the session by giving a photographic assignment. That assignment will be due for completion before the next class meeting, and we will review those images at the start of the next session. If for some reason you cannot attend one of the sessions, don’t worry! They will be recorded and you will be able to watch them at your leisure!
Our Multi-Session Series is designed to “keep the conversation going” by engaging with our attendees in a more personal way. In each of these classes, we will have 10-15 attendees and provide direct feedback on images. We encourage photographers of all skill levels to consider these classes, as they will build upon your experience and provide an excellent chance to work on your imagery!
Photographing in Black & White
How does one see and create images in black & white in the modern, digital world? This is a question that we have brought up many times in the past, but during this multi-session class, we will be able to explore many different elements of black and white photography from how to choose a suitable black and white subject to how to process an image effectively.
For this course, we’ll start with an introduction to black & white photography in the first week, discussing the basics of what makes a good black and white images. In week two, we’ll work specifically on contrast. In the third week, we’ll focus on the editing essentials of black and white using Adobe Lightroom Classic. In our final week, we will have a full image critique of three images created during the 4-week class.
Each week you’ll have a new assignment that will help workshop your images. Along the way, you’ll be able to ask Don questions and receive weekly individual, personalized critiques and feedbacks from your assignment images.
Photographers should have an understanding of exposure before taking this class.
