Upcoming Workshops


 

After nearly 25 years of teaching the B&W Master Print at Santa Fe Workshops I am passing this very popular workshop to Memphis Barbree. Reid Callanan, The Director of the workshops asked me who I thought would be the best person to teach this class. I did not hesitate. Out of all the great B&W photographers I can think of, Memphis is the best there is when it comes to both print quality and teaching. She is the best B&W student I have had in my teaching career. Her documentary work with NASA is some of the best photography of the space program. My highest marks. - George DeWolfe

The Compelling Image

Expressive Black & White Photography

Ongoing online course. Register now: https://www.thecompellingimage.com/courses/52-expressive-black-and-white-photography

While black and white photographs were among the very first photographs taken, they are now a new "frontier" in digital photography. Digital cameras record light differently than film cameras and differently still than the human eye. This black and white online photography course taught by professional photographer and workshop instructor, Memphis Barbree, is designed to help digital photographers see, think and express in light and shadow, black and white.  It will cover how the human eye and the camera record light and how to begin to express yourself in the scale of white, gray and black tones to produce dramatic images that speak your voice.  

In the digital age, we have many options for manipulating our photographs. But a beautiful black and white photograph is more than a color image converted to grayscale with a software mouse click or change of a camera menu. A black and white photograph begins before you squeeze the camera's shutter button.  The art of black and white photography entails the extra step of taking a world we see in color and telling it's story with only shades of white, black and gray. These online photography classes, digital photography course online beginners and their practical hands-on assignments will help you see and capture beautiful monochrome images that speak of the world the way YOU see it.
