It is a misnomer to think that Black and White is the absence of Color. It is not!
Lots of photographers think that they can turn a color image into B&W with the mere click of a setting. Not true!
Not all images work as B&W. There is a lot of thought that goes into picking these images. This presentation will address these issues and explain the elements that are conducive to a great B&W image.
The presentation will also focus on the tools available allowing us to turn a color image into black and white as well as the following external factors:
The suitable light for a B&W photo;
The effects of harsh directional light;
Soft light under heavily textured cloudy skies;
The effect of fog;
The effects of uniform skies with no textures;
The effects of sidelight on heavily textured surfaces;
And … much more.
