The creation of black and white images is not as easy as you might think. In fact, it is a completely different approach than color because of the play and effect of shadows. Traditionally, black and white photography was always seen as a more artistic endeavor, but it can be an expression of place, of time and of feeling. Not every image can be captured well as a black and white image, so learning how to recognize the subject for a black and white image is vital.
This talk will help to illuminate the shadows and misconceptions about black and white photography with stunning, stark and even ethereal images by Ron Rosenstock from his more than 50 years behind the lens.
This talk is November 16th at 7:00 at the Springfield Photographic Society in Springfield, MA.
