About the event

If you stop and think about what all the brain has to decide on, well it makes sense why most good photography schools require you to shoot in black and white and with a 50mm lens. It helps to remove the noise to help the up and coming photographer as well as experience shooters see and feel more.

Going back and just shooting in black and white for two weeks did wonders for my composition and connection to the subject matters. With this art form you will dive into what matters.

"...Black and white allows you to begin to think about these key elements (lighting, composition, elements in and out of the frame) that you might otherwise not focus on as much when you’re thinking about making colors work together, or pop......

One of the most common reasons people want to shoot in black and white today is because it lends a certain timeless quality to the images. This is because we still think of black and white as being a throwback to the photographic past. Of course, it is in terms of black and white was much more prevalent before color, but this is still a great reason to shoot black and white..... David Geffen"

In this Photography Workshop at Harpers Ferry, we will practice seeing composition in your frame at this beautiful location. And focus on the quality of light, the exposure, and subject matter while walking the streets of this od town.

We will try to remind everyone that correct exposure is more critical with fim and its lack of room for error as we photograph.

  • Film or Digital Camera
  • Speed light (optional)
  • Light meter, (hand held Incident. Optional of course, I use an App that does well too.)
