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

Sandra, NZ
I had some trouble downloading the software myself but the customer support team helped promptly and solved all my issues to the highest level of satisfaction. Thanks.
Robert, US
I appreciate the help the support team provided with the installation on my computer. The tech spent well over three hours trying to get the product installed and the licensing handled. We went through numerous restarts and they always responded promptly after I sent a password for the remote access to my computer. I will highly recommend your company to others for software purchase. Thanks again.
