Foundations of Photography: Black and White with Ben Long


In this 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

  • Toning and split-toning

  • Comparing high key versus low key images

  • Preparing a black and white image for print

Did what they say they would do. Once I figured out what I was supposed to do, it work a dream and I'm happy with the product which is working great. I would use this service again.
Larry, US
It took me a few minutes to figure out I wasn't following your instructions, but I kept working with it until I figured out the problem. No problems since. Thanks
Thomas, US
It was all good and I am impressed. Will be back again in the future!

The installation instructions in a video clip is a very good idea and extremely helpful.
