This 2-day workshop will explore and demonstrate ways to use your color capturing digital cameras to achieve the best possible results in Black and White. In many ways, “digital capture” can afford the Black and White photographer even greater control over the results than can be achieved using the traditional means of film and the wet darkroom. This workshop, divided between shooting out on the streets of Winnemucca and working in the classroom with Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom, will be a thorough introduction to the exciting possibilities of using the digital camera for Black and White.
