Digital Black and White Photography

Digital Black & White Photography will be a personalized collaboration between the student and teacher Jeff Zaruba, and the participants will expand their creative vision and further their pursuit of black and white photography. Students will investigate various different elements that lend themselves to great black and white images. These techniques will be practiced and applied in a hands-on location shoot, followed by lab time where students will process images using Lightroom and Photoshop.

During class time, Jeff will share inspiring black and white images and Instagram sites and discuss the elements that make these images successful. Students will learn Lightroom and Photoshop techniques that are particularly helpful for black and white images.
