In the absence of color, brightness and contrast become the only means of communicating an image, but far from becoming a limitation, a monochromatic image can create a strong visual cohesion without the interference of color merely by manipulating texture, brightness, and contrast. It can more easily achieve a stronger composition.
Practicing with capturing in black and white over a period of time is one of the important aspects of developing oneself not only as a photographer but also as a creative artist.
Join and learn from the master himself in an immersive journey as a visual artist through participating in our one-day masterclass workshop on black and white photography.
