Forget converting to gray scale and learn everything about making amazing black and white images in the lab and in the field

Forget “convert to grayscale.” This five-day workshop provides the time to cover everything you want to know about black-and-white. Hands-on. From how to make gallery quality inkjet prints to the “best” black-and-white conversion techniques; we’ll cover it all. Step-by-step Photoshop demonstrations, individualized instruction, and practice time in MMW’s state-of-the-art digital lab teach participants how to do great black-and-white “darkroom” work digitally.

While lab-time will focus on creating, processing, printing, and presenting black-and-white work, field trips will allow the class some play-time to enjoy the beauty of mid-coast Maine, make new images, and learn to shoot better for monochrome. Every student will complete the course with a new understanding of how to “think” in black-and-white. Participants will also learn which inkjet printer/paper combinations rival (or exceed) traditional darkroom prints, and why understanding color-management and image-resolution is critical for consistent, repeatable, best-quality results. By the end of the week, everyone will have their own beautiful B&W prints to take home as well as a virtual arsenal of Photoshop techniques to bring their B&W work to the next level.

Prerequisite: This course is not for beginners; participants should be entirely comfortable with Mac computers and Adobe Photoshop.
