Take Better Black and White Pictures ... Faster

Black and White pictures are ALL about the colors.  It sounds crazy ... I know, but it is one of the biggest reasons why Black and White pictures turn out dull, gray and  unremarkable.  The other big reason is that photographers don't know how to enhance Black and White pictures, because this is a very different process than Color enhancement.

Black and White Photography is Different than Color

Just Converting Your Pictures to Black and White Won't Give You a Good Result

Color Original

Here is a colorful flower that stands out from the leaves, and the pedals have a visible delicate texture. 

Straight to B&W

Converted straight to Black and White, the flower turns gray and blends in with the leaves.  The dark color makes the texture look less than delicate.

B&W Enhanced

Using our techniques, you can make the flower stand out from the background and bring out the delicate pedal texture.

Make Choices Like a Pro

Black and White Subjects, Lighting and Enhancement Require a New Set of Eyes

Choose the Best Subjects

Dirt and grime are your friends.  At least they are with Black and White photography.  You will learn what makes a great Black and White subject.

Enhance Like a Pro

Color is probably the most important part of any picture you convert to Black and White.  You will learn how to look at scenes in Black and White.

Create Lasting Memories

A Black and White photo is timeless and classic.  That is, if you do it well.  You will learn how to enhance pictures like a Pro, so your photos stand the test of time.

These courses are an amazing resource. Topics that I had only read previously in a photo book are presented clearly and are much easier to understand through the video lessons. I was most impressed by the post-pro coverage on enhancement; skills that everyone with a camera should learn.
