Black and White Imaging creates a timeless, journalistic feel

       Black & White Imagery, sophisticated and thought provoking...

  Black & White Imagery....

Black and White images provide viewers with an image of timelessness with a journalistic feel. An image is a window  that opens viewers eyes to the moments we as photographers capture and experience. How we present that moment, or a series of moments,  is the photographers responsibility to tell the story,  evoke a feeling, and provide viewers with information about the subject. Knowing how to capture images with those three ideas in mind requires a whole thought process and spontaneity from the photographer to become second nature to be able to react with camera in hand.

Our tools are a part of us, and as image makers, just like our eyes are a part of us, so are our cameras. Black and white images capture our attention because color must be imagined on a subliminal level. Black and White imagery tells story as an images must stand on it's own, allowing the inherent drama to unfold while opening the windows to our experiences or stories.  Our most famous photographers have captured the beauty in black and white imaging. In this workshop we get in the digital and technological aspects of black and white, tonal values of black and white and the psychological aspects of perception in black and white. 


Black and White Photography Workshops

Black and White Photography Workshops and classes are taught at Stanwycks Photography's Professional Photography Studio. Vicki Stanwycks is a Master Black and White Printer taught at ITT Tech, Germain School of Photography, ICP and several master photographers she worked under while studying and working her career in New York City and New Orleans. She was educated and worked in the days of film when black and white was crafted while shooting with filters and long hours in the darkroom were spent developing film and printing large prints. In the Darkroom several processing techniques were applied while developing and printing in a chemical darkroom.

Vicki Stanwycks brings these skills into the present digital arena, knowing how to shoot digitally for the most eye catching black and white digital images imitating film. Vicki has a good knowledge of tools that are used in today's digital darkroom creating outstanding dramatic black and white images.

Are we snapping photos or creating images? With Instagram and Facebook inherently everyone is a kind of journalist - yet many an image is a snapshot. The difference however in a good image maker and a snapshot maker is our methodology and care we take to understand the image and the process to create a fine image and the equipment we use.

Attendees should have a Camera, with lenses, laptop or home computer and software which we can discuss before the workshop/class. We will go shoot photographs. It's recomended to wear something comfortable, weather appropriate and closed toe shoes or sneakers.



Do you want to create a great better black and white images?

There is a lot more to black and white than changing an image in Photoshop or light room. We go over it in these classes or workshops.

Black and white imagery brings emotion...

Which is why journalism was so powerful in the days of Life Magazine and our Sophistiacted Imagery of today. Black and White tells stories differently then colorful imagery. This holds true today in the images we create now and for the endless stories told by so many Journalistic image makers, so many digital cameras...
