June 11, 2019 - Black & White Nature Photography – Landscapes and More with Eric Bowles

2019 06 EricBowlesJoin us for Eric Bowles presentation “Black and White Nature Photography – Landscapes and More”. The meeting will begin at 7:00 pm at the Chattahoochee Nature Center in Roswell. All are welcome.

We know the classic images of Edward Weston, Ansel Adams, and the modern classics of John Sexton and Vincent Versace. Their black and white images are still striking for their use of light and composition. Early photographers did not have the option of color, digital processing, and the other capabilities we use for image making. How can we build on classic ideas for B&W images using today’s tools?

What is the difference between a black and white image vs. a color image. What gear do you need? How do you learn to “see” in monochrome tones? What camera settings help to optimize your images? What post processing tips can enhance monochrome images? There is a lot more to B&W than reducing saturation or removing the color. 

We’ll take a look at all these things and more to help you make great B&W nature photographs with today’s digital equipment.
