The beauty of black and white

Black and White Workshops

There is something magical about the classic simplicity of the black and white image. Our Black & White Photographic Workshops concentrate on getting the best out of the digital medium and take participants from the initial image capture, through editing in Photoshop and on to profiling and printing, maximizing quality at all stages of the digital workflow.

This five night/four day photographic course splits itself in two, with two days in the field photographing the best that the beautiful English Lake District has to offer and two days dealing with the practice and theory of the digital workflow.

We ask our guests to arrive after 3.30pm and before 4pm, the workshop starts at 4pm with refreshments and a Camera Surgery. Guests tend to leave after breakfast on the last day of the workshop, normally between 9.30 and 10am.

Days out

The workshop days in the field are designed to give guests the opportunity to capture the best possible image files to work with, including the use of filters where necessary. In ensuring all the images captured have good shadow and highlight information throughout, guests will be able to make the most of them when processed.

Days in

Our Black & White Photographic Workshop days in are spent with a mixture of informal lectures from John, mixed in with practical hands-on sessions where guests can experiment and practice under John's ever-present guidance. One of the overriding features of the time spent in these workshops is the development of a logical and repeatable workflow.
