Foundations of Photography: Black and White with Ben Long


In thisĀ Foundations of Photography, Ben Long shows photographers how to develop a black and white vocabulary and explains the considerations to take into account when shooting for this medium. The course follows Ben as he goes on location and explains what makes good black and white subject matter and how to visualize the scene in terms of tonal values and contrast rather than color. Along the way, he demonstrates some exposure strategies for getting the best images. Back at the computer, Ben demonstrates techniques for converting the resulting photos into black and white using Photoshop and other imaging tools, and offers tips on printing and output.

Topics include:

  • Why shoot in black and white

  • How to recognize good black-and-white subject matter

  • Preparing the camera

  • Shooting a tone-based subject

  • Exposing for black and white

  • Understanding grayscale

  • Converting from color to black and white using Photoshop CS4 or CS5

  • Converting to black and white in Camera Raw

  • Vignetting

I'm very happy with the way everything went during buying and installation. Everything went smooth and the guidance video was very helpful and easy to understand.
William Brackman, US
I thank you for all the help and patience that you have given me and I do feel that I have been a bit of a nuisance with my many requests for help. All the team have been so helpful and polite that I will certainly buy any future software that I require from you. Also your rapid response to requests is second to none and I applaud you for it.
Ibrahim, SA
I recommend everyone who wants to own a very reliable original Photoshop copy, to get it from here without even a little hesitation ... thank you for providing us with this. I wish you all the best. I give this website and the program as well 5 if not 10 stars.
Wayne, AU
The rating for Customer Support doesn't do the guys justice! I had a niggling problem with the installation and they supported me through the entire process. In the end they did a remote install - problem fixed! Very happy with the outstanding service they provided. Thanks again guys.
