In the absence of color, black and white photographs must rely on the range of luminance, contrast between highlights and shadows, and shades of gray to draw our attention. Without the distraction of color, texture, lines, form and shape take on added importance in a composition.
Although color photographs date back nearly to the beginning of photography, their practicality and permanence precluded widespread use until Kodachrome was introduced in 1935. Since the 1970s, color photography has dominated, and black and white photography is regarded as an esoteric art form relegated to the purists.
Nevertheless, many color photos excel in black and white, particularly those with dramatic light. Black and white photos often have a cleaner, timeless look which can accentuate a subject or landscape.
In this 1 hr. webinar, Ray will showcase some black and white images and demonstrate the use of Nik Collection’s Silver Efex Pro 2 for conversions. Learn about Nik’s U PointTM technology for making selective, localized adjustments without masking or brushing. Photographers with a working knowledge of Photoshop will benefit the most from this webinar, although the plug-in can be launched from Lightroom.
