Ben Long Teaches You Black and White Photography
CreativePro.com senior editor Ben Long has released the fourth course in his "Foundations of Photography" series on lynda.com. In "Foundations of Photography: Black and White," Ben breaks down everything you need to master the medium.
You'll learn how to recognize subject matter that translates well to black and white, and how to expose scenes properly.
Ben also explains the many ways to use Photoshop to convert digital shots from their native color format to grayscale, and how to enhance photos post-conversion using Photoshop and dedicated plug-ins. He even has tips for printing images in black and white.
This course, which is more than three hours long, was filmed both on location and at the computer. You can watch it and the first three courses in the Foundations of Photography series (landscape, exposure, and lenses) on the lynda.com website for as little as $25 a month.
