Santa Fe Photographic Workshops: The Language of Black and White

Black-and-white photography is an art form unto itself, a way of seeing and appreciating the world with insightful, illuminating, timeless consistency. The process begins long before conversion, and in this online workshop we focus on the big picture, exploring the physics, optics, technology, aesthetics, and individual artistry that goes into creating evocative monochrome imagery.

We slow down and peer through historical lenses, taking time to consider how the progression of technology has shifted the character of black-and-white images over the past century. By delving into the key characteristics of light, you learn how to manipulate your camera and digital editing tools to express illumination.

As we engage in a range of photographic experiences—from the complex world of simple studies to solo play and creative challenges that capture the beauty of the world around us—you hone your style and focus your intention, deepening your concept of what it means to make a powerful black-and-white photograph. Lectures from Cira, group discussions, assignments, image reviews, and guest photographer presentations all leave you with expanded vision, fresh inspiration, and a sense of mastery over the medium.
