Black and White Overview
This course is designed to show photographers how to see the world in black and white, what makes a good black and white subject, how to visualize a scene in terms of tonal values and contrast rather than colour and shooting with long exposure.
The Camargue is a haven for any lover of nature and the wild. Situated on the coast of Southern France, it consists of wonderfully unspoilt wetlands, natural lakes & marshland and exceptional wildlife. This course is wonderfully varied and includes different landscapes, birdlife, Black Camargue Bulls and two shoots in different locations with the famous Wild White Horses.
Destined for intermediate photographers to experienced amateurs, Serge runs these workshops in an informal and relaxed manner and participates in every workshop personally to be on hand for one to one advice and to respond to your every need, which is also why we keep the groups small to ensure everyone is guaranteed the maximum benefit.
Serge's aim is to help everyone on the course improve their photography skills by getting the most out of their equipment and how to develop a photographic style 'vision'. He will demonstrate how to convert from colour to black and white using Lightroom as well as post-production techniques. Serge will help you to use your camera with manual mode, aperture priority and how to set the exposure correctly with histograms and depth of field. He will give you individual guidance on composition, choice of filters and lens' and tips.
The best place for hands on explanation is in the field in a real situation and this is where we understand the most, seeing the vision and learning how to capture it.
